Mirrorless Camera design according to Sexton and LL. Agree?
May 20, 2012

I find it interesting because it discusses a few things that came up here when the OM-D was first rumoured, namely if the hump is correct design or the opposite.

I am not interested in his prediction about APS replacing m4/3 in the long turn, like discussed in another thread.

But Richard Sexton may have a point, starting from the Leica FF, against the excesses of retro i.e. where form prevails over function.

What do you think? Indeed the OM-D leaves me cold, and I much prefer the NEX 7 solution. I wonder also when Panny might abandon its faux-dSLR paradigm. for something more streamlined. a ' la LC1 ( or was it the L1?)

Am.
