I briefly handled a 1V at a camera shop last night, it felt okay in the hand, and I liked the placement and position of the EVF. I do have an E-P2 with the VF-2 EVF, but did not have it with me to compare side by side. I don't recall the specs, but I suspect that the VF-2 may be better than the EVF on the 1V. If you don't have the (absurdly expensive IMO) VF-2, and just use the rear LCD on your E-P2, then there is a point in favor of the 1V. I like the ability to articulate the EWVF on the Olympus, but that thing does kind of sit up on top of the camera in an odd way. My only lens is the 17/2.8, and the balance of the whole package is just odd somehow. Isn't the sensor on the 1V supposed to be a lot smaller than the Micro 4/3? That would be a point against the 1V.
