... except for the pink color scheme ... ;-)

I like it too, although for much the same reasons I like m4/3s. The phase detect focus will appeal to some shooters. (Will it have front/back focus problems?) I like the small speed light and upcoming GPS module.



It's hard to get an idea of the size of the mockup lenses (dpreview), but they seem larger than I expected. Here's to hoping it suffer from large lenses.

Yeah, size-wise it doesn't over much if anything over MFT. The 10-100mm is rather big.

Me too. Better (on paper) than I expected.

i'd like a white one with that cute led light ... and a big pink lens ... just what i need ... i wonder if it will shoot as fast as a 7d <img src='http://forum.photozone.de/public/style_emoticons/<#EMO_DIR#>/smile.gif' class='bbc_emoticon' alt='Smile' />
If the AF is as good as it sounds then m4/3 is dead to me! Has anyone done a body size comparison with other players yet? Time to look around the internets...

That pink lens will no doubt look best on the red J1.

... yes possibly - colour coordination is important for the fashion police out and about ...

... excellent - to think i almost bought that giant c thing ... now, needing a test on that 30-110 please, oh and the other smaller ones too, ta very much m <img src='http://forum.photozone.de/public/style_emoticons/<#EMO_DIR#>/smile.gif' class='bbc_emoticon' alt='Smile' />
Ooh, just saw it does the "take a shot before you press the shutter" thing too! I think this could be the closest to a perfect mirrorless camera for me. They just forgot the tilting screen, but I'd imagine that'll follow in a future body.



Seems to have kicked up some fun on the m4/3 fansites. They're dismissing the small sensor and not so small lenses.



nikonrumors seems to have died. "I am coming" site is still counting down.



I still haven't found anyone doing a body size comparison yet so I might end up having to do my own...

We're already discussing the time-frame <img src='http://forum.photozone.de/public/style_emoticons/<#EMO_DIR#>/wink.gif' class='bbc_emoticon' alt='Wink' />



Test camera will most likely be the V1.
