I'm leaning towards an m43 camera that includes a view finder

The Panasonic LVF-1 Electronic View Finder (EVF)  is awkward - The Panasonic GF1 is a beautiful compact camera and the add-on EVF makes it bulkier.  The EVF is useful, especially in bright light, but I did not care for it because of the additional bulk and its low resolution.  If I do use an EVF, it will be on another m43 body such as the Panasonic G2 or Panasonic GH2 which both have high resolution, built-in EVF's.

The Olympus looks cooler and is more compact, but only has an add on viewfinder.

The Panasonic G2 / GF2 have a built-in viewfinder, which may just be the thing that tips the balance for me.
