Very promising, but these first generation cameras are going to have a lot of quirks, including ergonomical.

Like this.


There's a reason they made that image last in the "views", lol. Very slim compact body, and then you slap a gigantic in comparison zoom lens on it? Why?? Classic rangefinder cameras were never used with zooms, just prime lenses. Mainly because zoom lenses hadn't been invented yet, but zooms wouldn't have worked well anyways.

If you'd really really like a wide-angle prime (16mm f/2.8, 24mm equivalent) you'd be much better off getting it with that lens than the 18-55mm, and I think you'd enjoy using it a lot more too.

I'd really be sold on something like this if somebody comes out with a 35mm equivalent f/2 or faster prime lens. Olympus/Panasonic more or less have that. The Olympus 17mm f/2.8 (35mm equivalent), and the Panasonic 20mm f/1.7 (40mm equivalent).

Lots of neat new cameras though! Will be interesting to see how Sony develops the platform and what else they come out with, and what Canon or Nikon might respond with too.
