Well, if the primary object of the exercise is size reduction, that's no smaller than my E-510...

Thats promising, it's smaller than an E-410/420 but with IS (IN Lens) a Swivel screen and a wealth of direct access buttons that compares very favourably with even the E-3.

The Panasonic L10 pictured next to the G1 here is about the same size as the E-510, but the E-510 kit lens is inbetween the size of the G1 kit lens and the L10 kit lens.

The G1 is significantly smaller than the E-510, especially in the depth and height of the body as well as the lens size. And it has a 3 inch articulating screen.

That said, the E-510 is very compact by DSLR standards and you can get a twin lens E-520 kit typically for £531 - quite a bit less than the G1 with just the kit lens.

It's horses for courses. Remember, Micro Four Thirds is aimed at those who considered buying a DSLR but weren't convinced enough to go for one, so you may not be their target market.

Ian - Thanks for the comparison picture, it makes it easier to judge. Looking at it in the video from the link above it certainly looked to be the same size as the E-510. Speaking of articulating screens, it's the one thing I'd love to have on the E-510...

I'd just like to have an articulate photographer behind the lens of MY E-520...*yo
