    Olympus E-P1 review @ Mac-Forums blog
    Howdy everyone!

    I've just posted a review of the Olympus E-P1 over at the Mac-Forums.com blog.

    I've sent it back after a one week review period, but if you have any followup questions, be sure to let me know and I'll answer them as best as I can.

    How do you think it stacks up against something like say a G10?

    I cannot be held responsible for the things that come out of my mouth.

    I'd say the level of control you get is similar, but the quality of images is better. The sensor is quite a bit larger (1/1.7" vs. four-thirds) and I think that combined with the interchangable lenses gives the E-P1 a considerable edge. But price-wise it's also in a different category at the moment.

    Plus, from everything I've seen, you take the G10 much above its base iso, noise starts to creep in at iso 200, and you get smearing of fine detail at iso 400.

    Aptmunich does have a point on the price, it is much more expensive then a G10 - but the camera is more aimed at the dSLR market for people who want more then a plain old P&S, but don't want the bulk, feel, etc. of a true dSLR.

    I think Oly has a wonderful little camera here, although I think they'll find a bit of a challenge due to price w/ lack of certain features (like what Apt had pointed out in the review - lack of onboard flash, lack of low light focus assist lamp, etc.).

    Thanks for your review Apt, always interesting to read more about new cameras - most that I have read have felt pretty similar about the camera - and interesting consensus so far.
