    Not sure
    the E330's viewfinder is already very small and dim the last time i tried it out. It looks like the new panny will be the same, which potentially will make manual focus difficult..... that's definitely not a Leica-esque trait...

    Not really, with the Live Preview at 10X zoom on the high res 2.5" LCD, manual focus is actually way easier than any SLR camera with normal viewfinder, if you have tried that out.

    yup, but then again there will be quite a bad shutter lag if you use that mode. and if you are shooting macro, the shallow DOF + shutter lag might cause you to miss focus again by the time it capture the image.
    in dark situation and non-macro shoot, the 10x zoom would be useful, since slight movement will not cause misfocus.

    i would say go for nikon if you got a budget. L1 seems very much overpriced for it specification (to me at least) 1999US more than enough for you to even get a nikon d200 + 1~2 consumer level lens.

    If you really liked the handling of the LC1, you will regret it if you buy any other camera now when the L1 is launched and all the hoopla and postings start.
    Personally, I am prepared to pay more just for the unique handling and design and that most talkabout Leica 14-50mm OIS lens.

    my complain of the L1 is that it uses the 4/3 system. Aspect ratio alo 4:3...boring leh. I would prefer the APS format with aspect ratio 3:2.

    it's weird also that if we wana choose 3:2 or 16:9 formats on the L1, we must use live view function. then got shutter lag. sad

    So, how much will a D200 cost together with an equivalent F2.8 28mm~100mm VR lens?

    For people willing to spend that amount of money on a body, consumer lens just doesn't cut it at all.

    actually with the current price of d200 at $2500 or so, the rest of the $ can be spent on a 50mm f1.4, saying consumer lens is just an example. it doesn't mean you can only buy that. might not be enough to get a 28-100 VR f2.8-3.5 equiv lens, but the spec of d200 is far better from what listed (real life performance i got no idea, since L1 not out yet )

    anyway another camera to consider would be the Sony Alpha 100. Price is 101% attractive(999USD) consider it have built-in IS, 10MP censor, and a lot more

    sobsob, it's selling for 248,000 yen...that's around 3500sgd. sob.

    means that we should be expecting 3600sgd already lor...our price is usually slightly more expensive than Japan.

    pain~

    i know i want to get this camera. but the price~
    it's like buying the leica lens and not the camera...

    If you look at it that way, then it is a very good deal.... buy the superb Leica lens and get the L1 body free !!! After all, Canon 'L' lenses can cost almost as much if not more and people here buy them like they were just 'peanuts'.
