Yes, all entries will need to have been taken using an E-System camera or a Panasonic camera using an E-System (Zuiko) lens. I'm also inclined to allow XZ-1 and XZ-2 compacts.

I'm still not sure about limiting entries to those taken recently, after all a major reason for revamping the competition is the falling numbers of entries and the fewer constraints the better. However, this is a worthy aspiration provided it doesn't have a negative impact upon the number of entries. I might introduce it next year, when hopefully we will have solved any teething problems with the new format and the list of themes for the whole year is published in advance. Then it would make sense to specify that entries must be taken within a year, to match the period of notice given.
