I’m very intrigued by the new Micro Four-Thirds format. The design ideas make good sense, and there’s no inherent aspect of the design that I can see that would dictate the image quality not being able to match today’s DSLR in the range of a Nikon D80 or Canon XTi, if not something more like a Canon 40D or Nikon D300.
The Panasonic Lumix G1 is a great first example, it seems. And stuff like this (search for “0.95″) make this seem like a killer backup camera / wife camera / mature child camera. If my kids continue to show interest in photography, I could see getting something like this for them at age 10 or 12.
Do you find the Micro Four-Thirds format interesting?
