    It depends - it doesn't have that cute retro look - but that lens looks like it might be fast. And it looks very flat and easy to pocket. Could be a good challenge to the LX5.

    And compatibility with the Pen cameras is a big plus for you Pen owners out there.

    Thanks, Mauve - I had to do a double take when I saw your thread because I thought it had already been reported here! Then I realized that it's over on Serious Compacts that there's a discussion with some other links: New Olympus Serious Compact - with fixed Zuiko zoom lens

    Good points, Narnian.

    By the way, I moved the thread into "News and Rumors" until they actually manufacture and release the camera.
