Excerpt: If you have trouble deciding between a digital SLR and a compact point-and-shoot, Olympus’ new micro four-thirds camera may be the perfect camera for you … provided you’ve got a cartoon-sized sack full of money.
Pros: Compact, 12-megapixel camera with interchangeable lenses. Giant LCD screen. Great low-light performance, professional features including full manual control and RAW mode. That design is hot, son. Hot!
Cons: A good deal more expensive than the nearly identical E-P1. Costs about the same as a full-sized DSLR. LCD viewfinder is lower-resolution than the main LCD and is annoyingly laggy. Viewfinder also hogs flash hot-shoe.
