Terrific article, I am seriously tempted to pick up one of these cameras.
Your comment on the flash card seemed like a nit. But if someone is disappointed it doesn't come with a flash card, think how ticked they will be when they find out it doesn't come with a lens!
Seriously, I would think that someone considering this class of camera would toss any memory card packaged with this camera, opting to pick up the largest, fastest card available. Maybe it won't help that much but it only feels right in a camera like this.
