Wow, looks like my dream was answered - an iPhone-like touch screen! From the posted videos and dpreview's preview it looks like it could make the camera easier and faster to navigate - and I'm all for that. Looks like I'll be upgrading : )Have you actually used one? I did a couple of years ago, when I had a Panasonic FX-500 with a 3" touchscreen (it was Panny's first touch screen on a camera). It was actually better than I thought it was going to be. But it does leave fingerprints.
Having said that, I prefer the touch screen on my iPhone and having to clean it regularly, than no iPhone touchscreen at all. So I guess we have to see how it really is in practice.
Boyzo, I'm coming from the other end as I started with E-P2. I really, really like it. I was a little nervous getting it as I was coming from FF Canon but was very surprised! Do you use the G1 much? Reason I ask is cuz G2 looks good to me and I seem to be buying Pany lenses. Here's my thinking: E-P2 for street with pancakes, adapted OM oly & range finder lenses. G2 would be for bigger zoom lenses and larger adapted. Don't really care about video so much. Do I gain much or just stick with the E-P2?However as a new E-P2 user I am thinking (what was all the Oly posters admiration for the Pen) its not till you use one you realize how attaching it is.
