I can't remember the last time an affordable non-L prime came out? I think it was the 60/2.8

The Cokin P filter holder has three slots. If you don't mind having only two slots, here's what you do: take a sharp utility knife and cut off the outer slot from the filter holder. Voila, no more vignetting. This 5 minute fix has served me well.
Good idea! ... however would like to know how wide can you go with 1 slot cut off (2 left) i.e. is 24mm ok?
i hope the new 1dx is telling us alot about the up coming 5dii ... i hope the ff sensor stays the same, no need for a larger mp sensor. whats the point?
... you land up with a product which is rather like a motorbike with a sidecar - it inherits the disadvantages of a motorbike combined with the disadvantages of a car, and only satisfies a small market segment.And you price that motorbike-and-sidecar higher than a fully loaded Honda Civic.
The lower end of the market could probably not care less about interchangeable lenses - they are perfectly happy with a compact.I agree with you. I just don't see the market here. And here we have a brand-new sensor and brand-new line of lenses. Chances are, if this thing doesn't sell like hotcakes (probably won't) then prices won't come down in a hurry. Olympus PEN hasn't exactly taken the market by storm.
The higher end of the market insists on image quality - these users already have DSLRs and need a pocketable camera.
what an epic fail.... i only hope canon will do it right.
