For those with sticker shock, keep in mind that the MSRP of the E-P1 was $800. And the gf1 came out at $899. I'll just wait a year (or 2) and buy one for $500.

Not sure if this has been posted yet.

This video shows the difference between the 17mm lens and the 12mm lens focus speeds on the ep3.

The 17mm is slower than the 12mm, but it appears much faster than my E-p1. Keep in mind I've seen some videos of focus speed with the MSC kit lens, and it appears just as fast as the 12mm. Since the 17mm isn't an MSC lens, it may not have the hardware speed as the others. Still an improvement.
