As I read it only for the Lumix DLC L10, and not for E series DSLRs?

I think it also includes the new E-420, though only Ian currently (I think) has one of those!

You could well be right as the E-420 is missing from the list of cameras not supported. Wonder why?

I think the E-420 is the only Oly that uses that specific sensor. Ian will clarify I am sure Paul.

Imager AF mode is only implemented on the E-420 and the Lumix DMC-L10 at present. It looks, and this is only a guess, like Olympus has improved the imager AF operation of the supported lenses (at present the 14-42 and 40-150 Mk2 kit lenses, plus the 25mm pancake lens) specifically for the L10 body via the firmware update.
