Re: GX1 - No built-in EVF? What a waste of an opportunity!
Oct 25, 2011

I've long been looking fwd to the arrival of an NEX version of my GF1.

However, for me, and I suspect many others, not to have a built-in EVF, (as is rumoured) as in the Sony NEX7, makes the camera useless for my way of working. Holding a camera at arms length to take a photo is just too awkward and shake-inducing - for me at least - not to mention the problem of trying to use washed out screens! It would totally rule out any chance of me upgrading with Panasonic!

In my view, they are also passing up on the opportunity to cash in on the 'alternative to the Leica' market.

Let's hope that Olympus is not so stupid as to go down this route (said he wishfully!).

Let’s see how the NEX7 fares under test and I look fwd to the new Fuji CSC due for launch in the first half of 2012. It’s sad that, while both Fuji and Sony appreciate the benefits of a decent built-in finder in their 'rangefinder style' cameras, Panasonic and Olympus do not. What an immense disappointment!
