     I'm in a similar frame of mind.  I've become very tired of the Kodak 
DX7590 that was given to me.  If not for the fact that it is auto-focus (AF) 
only, it would be fine as a casual walk-around camera.  But none of the photos 
I've taken with it are in what I would consider to be good focus.  I like the 
size and weight, but I cannot live with this problem.

     I'm surprised that nobody has marketed a digital camera with 
interchangable lenses that is similar to the shape of a video camera.  Such a 
camerea would be fairly compact and easily made to accomodate both left- and 
right-handed photographers, and could have all the same features as tradionally 
shaped cameras.

     Anyway, I'd also be inerested in learning about compact digital cameras 
that would use the same lenses as the E-4x0 and E-5x0 series.  I retired the 
14-45mm lens that came with the E-500, but I would be glad to retrieve it from 
storage if I could come up with a suitable small walk-around body.
