It looks a lot like the X20 and is gorgeous, or at least better looking than the X-E1. There are loads of folks who have never used cameras with viewfinders, and won't be upset at the lack of one. The APS sensor could make it a real competitor to the E-P5.

I don't see anything is better looking than XE-1. For the body only, XE-1 is just $100 more. I bet XM-1 + 16-55 slow kit lens will be sold at least $1000.
To me, $1200 for XE-1 and 18-55 f2.8-4 is a better deal ( faster/nicer lens), and having aperture ring !

When I see this release, I'm glad that I bought XE-1 and 18-55 2.8/4.
I'm interesting in the pencake 27mm, however.

The *guesstimate* now is $600-650 for the body without the 16-50 kit lens.
Since the kit lens is slow the *guestimate* with lens *should* be around $800

YMMV :tongue:

I would not think the new kit lens sold for $150, but we will see :smile:
The 18-55 2.8-4 is so damn good! I also have 35mm 1.4 and honestly, it's on par with the prime at 35mm ( at f3.2). Hope the new kit lens is good too.
The new kit lens does not have aperture ring ?? If so, it's a big drawing back.
I think this new XM-1 competes directly with NEx 3R or Nex 6.

XE-1/18-55 againsts NEX 7.

The price is $800 with the kit lens. The controls are step up, but not different in concept, from a P&S camera. It's been added to the camera size compare site, and it's in the same size range as µ4/3.

With a body price $300 less than an E-P5 it's going to be a tough sell for Olympus with folks who haven't already bought into µ4/3.
