Re: What would make compact system cameras more attractive to yo The E-P2 and VF-2 comes close but the combination is ungainly and I have only used it in anger with my Panasonic 20mm f1.7 lens. This combination is not weatherproofed and seems a bit fragile. I chose the Oly because of the body stabilisation. I would like to see a weatherproofed mft with built in evf and small selection of short and standard primes. I do not need telephotos; that is DSLR territory. It seems that Panasonic and Olympus are trying to reach markets better served by DSLRs and compacts. Mft could superbly fill a niche formerly satisfied last by the Leica lllg or maybe the Leica CL or Contax G cameras. Perhaps the evf could be mounted vertically for transit and some use but could swing to the horizontal with a rear offset for normal eye level use. We used cameras without rear LCDs for years and an EVF could display everything displayable on a rear LCD. The rear LCD is redundant. I have no problem with all sorts of zooms being available for such a camera but I would not buy them unless the technology was so improved that the DSLR became obsolete. That is not going to happen in the near to medium future which in photographic terms implies the next six months. I know that there is much criticism of EVFs but how many of the critics have used the Oly EV-2? It isn't a bad effort for such an early implementation. Wot's all this about us English drinking like Vikings? I know that I am slightlly pissed but I have been drinking like a 'frog' with good taste. I intended my bottle of white Burgundy to last two evenings; it didn't.
