May be interesting if you're looking for something small to take on the slopes:

BUT, DO THEY HAVE VIEWFINDERS?  This is one of the things that is really starting to bug me.  I was excited when I saw they were bringing back the S-series.  Starting reading through it.  Can't find anything about a viewfinder.  Does everyone take pictures INDOORS these days?  This camera, supposedly for photographers, HAS NO VIEWFINDER, you have to rely on the screen!!!!!  I don't know about you guys, but when I am outside in snowy conditions, glare from the snow all around, I want a viewfinder!

sib - the G series has viewfinders - so the G11 is the one you should look at. (and I totally agree with you about needing one)

And still nothing what I'm waiting for. It would be about time to finally do something in other direction too, not just on low-end.

What are you waiting for? The 1DsMkIV? Or are you going to buy a Leica S?

New 1d. Leica wouldn't really do much with my business, and I prefer 1d over 1ds. So let's wait till September or when is suppose to be next date. I hope they will speed up things a bit and be a bit more serious this time as they were with 1dmk3. Otherwise we will really be forced to think about Nikon, and I hate to even think about this.

Sib I agree with you completely.
When my son started using my old G series I decided to downsize to a very nice Lumix. I love everything about it except the lack of a viewfinder. I ended up leaving it set on multiple exposures all the time for outdoor shots because I found that I could not properly frame my shot without a viewfinder.

And it's not only the fact that you can't see the screen outdoors.  I'm "at that age" and have been for years that I need my bifocals to see the screen.  Do I really want to mess around getting those out on a ski slope?  Heck, no!  The higher end, bulkier camera has a viewfinder, but I don't want bulk when I'm skiing.  On their website you have to look at each camera individually to find one with a viewfinder.  Very irritating!  I think we need a mass mailing campaign to get their attention.  You'd think that the aging Baby Boomer generation would all have the bifocal problem that I have.....

Last I heard, the 1DmkIV development was struggling with issues over the new autofocus system they are putting in it, but that should be sorted by now. Couple that camera with the new HIS lenses and it would be great!
