If you thought the White KM was ugly...

Then have a look at GH1 bling, fuzzy dice and red shaggy carpet extra ;-)

They need to hire some Apple designers. This is not how you make "user friendly" products.

It looks like its designed by a 55 year old completely hipless product manager.

Even the fonts are inconsistant, jesus.

14-140 is 28-280 on 4/3 so its a lot like the super-zoom 18-270 from Tamron.

It looks nice to me and at least it is less scratch suspectible for the matte chrome, unlike the ipod white K-m's surface.

More importantly, the GH1's advanced and unique features are what the GH1 sells, not the colour scheme alone.

Still waiting for your admission that the frame rate that you "calculated" for the K-m before its release was...... Completely bogus. Should I dig up the thread Rice?

I suggest you'd better to reply on that thread instead of here, which is off-topic.

It's not the worst camera I've ever seen. That lens has to leave though...small cam with huge lens equals design fail

That doesn't make any sense, considering that Apple products have a smooth finish...almost glass-like. Last time I checked, the K-m doesn't offer a mirror-like reflection.

I'll give you a golf clap for the flame bait. "B" for effort, "D+" for execution.
