In an interview with a Spanish camera website, the product planner for Panasonic's camera division said that the company are exploring the possibility of an entirely electronic shutter for stills, which has to have a very important capability not yet possible:

The global output of the entire sensor at it's native resolution without the mechanical shutter.

When an electronic shutter is uses this 'global' output is needed to avoid the rolling shutter effect currently seen in video. This has huge consequences for video, not huge as in a lack of jello but huge as in resolution.

My guess is Panasonic may well be first to the market with a 100% electronic none-mechanical camera system in it's G system line, because their smaller sensor is easier to adapt to the way a global shutter has to work.

THE 4/3 system will have many upgrades before then. Olympus has said that they will do a pro m4/3 above the EP1 and a camera below it. Also Fuji has said that they will soon announce a m4/3, but what will it be? They have discontinued their relationship with Nikon that let them put their great sensor in a Nikon body so there is a huge hole in the top end of their line. I just hope they are smart enough to go 1080 with decent codec. It is the possibility of these new cameras that let be buy GH1 now. at these prices the body is almost disposable, paid for after a single job. Keep the lenses and upgrade the body.

a quick question if I may..will the gh1 14-140 kit lens work on any upcoming 4/3 system dslr's (like fuji or olympus if they were to come up with a 4/3 dslr)

If it's a Micro 4/3, yes. If it's regular 4/3, no.

Like a genetically grown eyeball with wires, flash, and SD card slot? Wicked. I'm moving far away if that happens.
