    You'll have to review, but mainly I'm interested in the new VF.

    Enjoy!

    Early Christmas present, unless you're five days ahead of us in the US.

    Merry Christmas!

    Congrats!

    Also interested in how the EVF stacks up, particularly against the Olympus one and the integrated one in the G3...

    Enjoy!

    Congratulations! :thumbup:

    I have that camera, an extra battery and the VF coming today. Also my Christmas present to myself. I already have the 25mm F1.4 lens. I'm expecting great things from that combination.

    Merry Christmas David!!!

    No GX1 apparitions here in the US yet. Or at least not in Amazon.com!

    On the EVF, its very good. Its hard not to better than the previous one but its a significant improvement. Very similar to the G3 from my limited use so far.

    I gave it to myself 5 days early since the element of surprise was somewhat lacking!!

    How well does the locking mechanism work for the EVF?

    I have only had it for a few hours. I'll probably start a review / user experience soon.

    Enjoy your new gear (too bad it's not as handsome as your E-P3 kit). I'll be interested in following along in your usual excellent reports through your blog.

    Enjoy your Christmas present. Mine's only coming in the new year because it's the x14-42 lens kit version, which apparently is not yet available.

    David,

    Is the touch screen as good as it is on the E-P3?
