    This may not the same for Pana and Sony, without any consumer dslr that tie their hands, this may be a lucrative market segment for them to contnue developing.

    There are still a lot of people who do not want to lug around few kilos of equipments. They just want that all-in-one-high-MP-with-super-zoom prosumer digicam.

    EDIT: Forgot to add, price gap in both classes may be narrowing but the purchase of an entry-level DSLR with a kit lens may just be your initial investment.

    agree - consumer dslr "seduce" you with body price and then "chop your neck" heavily with the lens (same same tactic as the razor and blade)

    I concur.

    If you want a setup with a fast 12X image stabilised lens that is around $1000 range, these 12X prosumers digicams are the only way to go.

    Enuff said.

    mmm..not sure if its a good thing..Olympus has been a very good brand but these days, their camera design quite ugly and none of ther products seem to stand out...but I suppose all those years of optical experience must mean something somewhere..
