I wonder if they’ve managed to alleviate the inherent low-light disadvantage of Micro-Four-Thirds cameras yet. I have an E-PL2 that I love to bits but the low-light performance is really poor at handheld-friendly shutter speeds that require a high ISO. That’s the main factor that might sway me over to a Sony NEX.
Back in the early ’00s IrDA was a requirement for me when buying a phone. It was indispensable for transferring pictures between phones, back when Bluetooth was a luxury few had and email was not an option because of expensive GPRS charges.
Siemens and (Sony) Ericsson were leaders in this functionality for dumbphones. Nokia’s IR ability was crippled until Symbian and could only send vCards or connect multi-player Snake :D
