I got their Panasonic Lumix DMC-G1 2 years ago for 299$ blow out special. It does OK. I asume this new smaller body and better features is worth it. I only have (2) 4/3 lenses, but would like to stick with this format.
Thanks for posting and please update
Oh yeah - this camera will do much faster AF, much better high ISO (which allows better low light shooting for sunrise / sunset etc) and much, MUCH better video. The only 'issue' will be the lack of a viewfinder, which too be honest doesn't affect much anymore. I used the GM1 on a recent set of downhill ski trips in bright weather and it worked just fine. http://verndewit.com/p558287329
My first gen G1 does not have vid capability, the one after did, so far I shoot all vid with a dedicated Canon vid cam, and 3 years prior it was various Mini DV vid cams.
This review is pretty cool, keeping an eye on it.
