Re: Another Rumour

The speculated pricing is a little off-putting though if it's true. But then the price of the new X-Pro2 is fairly eye-watering too. Heavy discount incoming I expect for both.

Re: Another Rumour

I like the concept but maybe it's just me but I think it looks ugly. Not a patch on the previous pens. Happy to wait for the EM1 mk2.

Re: Another Rumour

I dont think the removable grip helps the way it looks, it unbalances it for me
not a pretty camera in my eyes, but will reserve full judgement until seen in flesh - but any way its what it does and how it handles over the looks that count

There were similar responses when the E-M1 images were first leaked too.

I don't what that dial is but I'm sure it will be useful (when the details are known).

I notice there are those (on that 'rumor' site) complaining about how large it is, but if it was smaller then the display would have to be smaller to fit that EVF in, although it does look larger with the attached Arca Swiss grip/plate.

Re: Another Rumour

I wonder if it'll have a flippy screen?

I see too that it has apparently 4 dials - so presumably one for mode, two for front & rear configurable dials (as per the OMDs) and then..... (drum roll.....) probably a dedicated exposure comp dial. Very nice. You can never have too many dials!

I'm concerned about its size though. Given that it's got the 75 mounted, that places its size as squarely in the GX8 camp - so bigger than an E-M1 and (crucially) a Sony A7. Then there the price which is pretty eye-watering. So - it had better be good!

Once that grip & 10mm (or close to) Arca Swiss base comes off then the camera should look much smaller. Yer don't want a hump in the middle, so ya gotta have that side lump instead.

That front facing dial might be exposure compensation or it might be something even better. Focus zone?

Re: Another Rumour

I like it, but that doesn't look much like a 75/1.8 on it though. Are they already upgrading that lens?
