Thanks for the hint, played with it today.

Looks good, I like the hybrid viewfinder. However, the camera itself looks a little less high-quality than the initial images suggested, IMO.

I was also given a price estimate of "around 1000 EUR". That sounds fair to me.

Yes, I saw it today. I thought it actually looked better than the pictures. I also thought it was a lot smaller than I anticipated <img src='<#EMO_DIR#>/biggrin.gif' class='bbc_emoticon' alt='Big Grin' />. I do think the price is a little steep, however, and I don't know whether they will sell enough to justify their R&D costs for this camera. Alternatively, it will be a very long manufacturing run <img src='<#EMO_DIR#>/biggrin.gif' class='bbc_emoticon' alt='Smile' />.

With many more system cameras around the corner (yes, I hate the EVIL acronym <img src='<#EMO_DIR#>/biggrin.gif' class='bbc_emoticon' alt='Big Grin' />), I think they probably should have gone for a slightly different set-up, by allowing for exchangeable lenses as a minimum, even if they would have had a single lens only to start with <img src='<#EMO_DIR#>/biggrin.gif' class='bbc_emoticon' alt='Big Grin' />.

Kind regards, Wim
