The Panasonic GF1 looks very promising quality-wise, especially for such a compact camera, look at this for the 20mm (40mm equivalent) at F:8, at this for the same tiny lens at F:1.7 (wow), and at this for the camera's ISO 1600 performance. (At those pages, click for big pic.)
Images overview. Camera overview.
Admitedly I wish it had in-body stabilization and a hinged screen, but apart from that, it looks like one of the best combinations we've seen yet of high quality and compact size, for street and travel use. (With the little lens it fits in a big jacket pocket or a small purse.)
It's the same size as the Olympus EP-1, but the autofocus is much more on the ball than with the Oly.
