Speaking of marketing genius; is this the most hyped and talked about camera release since the 5DMkII?  I’ve been following the E-P1 since Mike Johnston at The Online Photographer first started talking about it many months ago and I have to admit I’ve been lusting after it purely on looks alone.  I got to, briefly, play with one today and it felt as good as it looks.  Weighty but not heavy, quiet but not silent, it felt beautiful to hold.  At $1400 AUD though its going to have to wait awhile.  It will be interesting to see what people are saying in a few months when all the hype has died down.  The Online Photographer is promising an indepth review soon.  In the meantime Ken Lamug, a pretty fine street photographer, has a fairly positive review at his blog.

Update:  Ken Tanaka now has a mostly positive review over at TOP.
