I had the privilege of playing around with the Olympus OMD for a weekend and I must say, what a great camera!! It really is a much better camera than the Leica X1 in every "practical" sense. I commend Olympus and applaud them for creating such a camera. With all this in mind though, my heart still brings me back to the X1. The sensor/lens combination can really produce some magical and timeless images.
