If anyone goes, ask

1. New flashes preferably WR
2. Manual video controls

Don't ask crap about FA Limiteds and other useless questions.

Pro grade 4/3? are you kidding me, the format is a joke IMHO. Why downgrade to a technically inferior system? I don't care how compact the lenses are or how cool the features are the sensor is tiny and cannot match APS-C or FF in any way shape or form.
Then don't buy one. I have an E-P2 and a GH2. Great cameras.

I also shoot an M3 for film and a K5. Also great cameras.

I'd be willing to bet you that you would not be able to tell the difference between and 13 X 19 print from an E-P2 and a K5. Now if you are printing larger than that you probably could.

Depth of field perhaps?

I've shot quite a bit in both formats, and I honestly have a very hard time distinguishing between the two even in DOF. The one tele-tale sign might be in shots using wide angles at large apertures. Even in that situation you really have to go from 4/3's to full frame for it to be truly noticeable. ISO ability aside, my basic conclusion is that when shooting at 50+ MM's I prefer 4/3's to APS-C, but I prefer APS-C (or full frame) under 50mm's. When shooting 50+ mm's 4/3's format provides all the DOF control I need, but under 50 can be limiting. However, if Voigtlander makes a Nokton 17mm f/1 similar to their 25mm f/.095 that would take care of that issue also.

CP+ is coming up in February. This is where they announced the 645D last year. I would hope that they will announced something there this year. Rumors has it that Pentax is working on two "mirrorless" cameras. Maybe one will be shown at CP+ and the other at the renamed PMA this fall.

I really hope for a few more lenses.
