    Its about time they reintroduced an EVF to their superzoom range. 960k dots? better than some but not as good as it could be, and 460k dots on the read screen is not up to scratch anymore.

    Yup. But I give Oly credit for putting the EVF back in. I guess 960K dots is workable. I normally don't buy this kind of camera - the Stylus 1 would be my first choice - but I can imagine picking this up for jollies when the price drops by $100 or more.

    EDIT: On the other hand, Fuji's new S1 offers an EVF with the same resolution, a rear LCD with 920,000 dots, a lens with the same zoom range (but slightly faster aperture - f/2.8-5.6 vs. f/2.9-6.5), five-axis stabilization and weather resistance for $100 more:

    $399 is a pretty MSRP. It's bound to drop a bit. I hope the IBIS is up to 1200, however.

    That Fuji looks nice as well.

    It would need to be I would think; I am using a 45-150 (ie to 300mm equiv.) on my EM5 now, and the IBIS can just barely keep the max 300mm length steady - I would guess the super-long stuff is beyond what IBIS was designed for.
