Yes, I agree, very interesting move. I bought into the micro 4/3 system because the image quality wasn't there with the Canon S90 if I wanted to try to make a serious print, but m4/3 is not really a "carry everywhere on the belt" system even with just one of the pancakes, so the Sony is definitely interesting. It will be interesting to see how the Sony raw files hold up. I do wish they had stuck with a 12MP or 16MP sensor, though, just how big does Sony think people want to print from a compact camera anyway? I'd rather have even marginally better DR and noise.
