Olympus Pen

Playing around with AkibaHobby-sans Olympus Pen last week at the TFS.

This camera is incredible! The lens is just awesome. Recommended for folks who cant be bothered to lug around an SLR but want something a bit more compact with SLR quality.
Some samples at Flickr and the video quality looks brilliant too.

Apparently the smallest digital camera with a removable lens.

Looks like wifey wants one ^^;
The twin lens kit currently costs about 107000 yen. The lenses is being:-
M.ZUIKO DIGITAL ED14-42mm F3.5-5.6
M.ZUIKO DIGITAL 17mm F2.8
Cheapest prices available at http://kakaku.com/item/K0000041116/ with the body alone costing about 80000 yen.

While wifey will probably get the Pen, I'm waiting for more details about the rumored Lumix GF1 to succeed my Lumix LX3.

Speaking of cameras - would love to see your imaging armory too - post them over at figure.fm.
