Olympus E-520

Based on didjiman's experience, I'm also considering the Olympus E-520. It's a real new model, so there's not much in the line of review details.

Pros:
  • Excellent image quality
  • Very compact
  • Excellent Zuiko lens series
  • "Four Thirds" sensor size is 2x cropping factor, easy to convert
  • Good in-body image stabilization
  • Wireless support for FL-50R and FL-36R from built-in flash

Cons:
  • Max ISO1600
  • Few third-party lenses
  • "Four Thirds" sensor is small, could have diffraction issues at tight aperture
  • Viewfinder is reported to have a small image

Costco price: not yet. The E-420 kit is $500. Street for E-520 with kit lens <$700
