So forget waiting...I hopped on eBay tonight and there was an Olympus authorized dealer selling a refurb E-P1 w/ 14-42mm lens for $369.95 shipped. Too cheap to pass up.

Panasonic Lumix DMC-TZ3 w/Leica Lens. Takes great photos and great when you hook up to an LCD TV
or make copies of prints. Highly recommend the Lumix line by Pansonic.

I think it looks great. This is first of the compact, large-sensor cameras that I'm really excited about. Too bad, it won't be out til spring of next year, and will cost an arm and a leg.

it's been speculated that a single japanese design house did many of the motor-driven rangefinders and compact cameras of the 90s: the contax g-series, konica hexar rf, minolta tc-1, fuji klasse series, fuji tx-series (i.e. hasselblad xpan), and fuji ga645zi. there is another family of japanese cameras whose viewfinders were all designed by a single anonymous engineer that includes the leica cl, minolta cle, voigtlander bessa r-series, zeiss ikon, and the fuji gf670.

judging by the control dials and the hybrid viewfinder (based on the fuji ga645zi, no doubt), the x100 was most likely the product of the first group of designers. they were clearly working outside of their stylistic comfort zone, and i think the design is a failure.

tmi, anyone?

Highly Leica-like in terms of appearance.

eh...if a zorki, fed, and a yashica had a three-way, this would be its deformed offspring.

I got an Olympus e-520 last september as my first SLR and I've been nothing but happy with it. I really like the in-body image stabilization, makes lens hunting simpler. There aren't too many lenses to pick from with the 4/3 mount but the lenses that are out there seem to be held in very high regard. Noise performance isn't the best and 3 AF points aren't great but after weeks of research on which new to mid level camera to get, I think I made the right choice.

It's rumored to come in right at $1K, which is much lower than the previous estimates I'd heard for $1.5K:

I'll have one in a heartbeat if they come in at ten bills. Fuji has always made quality cameras, I don't see them fucking this one up.
