as to #12:

I have a major desire for a four-thirds camera right now with an adapter to take my leica m-mount lenses. The olympus EP-2 looks especially nice, and paired with any m-mount lens would be wonderful.

Check out http://www.flickr.com/groups/lumixg1m/pool for some pictures. 4/3rds cameras are small, comfortable, and have fairly decent sensors. They're the future!
