On thing that also make sme wonder.. how many of fixed lens user really use the OVF?

Remember that the XZ-1 is rather unique that it can take the EVF from the PEN suite. Panasonic does as well. It can work in various light conditions, and even stabilize your shootings.

I just have never missed or needed the viewfinder. But probably just because I never have used a good EVF/OVF. Well you can't miss if you don't wkno what you're missing.

What comes to the XZ-1 I feel like I'm wasting the potential because I don't have any use for the hot shoe and extension port. But EVF would make the camera unpocketable and drain the batteries more quickly.

Personally I would really like to see more cameras like Canon S100, Panasonic LX and Olympus XZ-1. The market is probably just too small for a big bang.
