There 2 things I would like to see (but missing) on the DP2m : built-in evf (like Nex7) and faster lens (f1.4); fotography-wise, this camera has very little improvement,

Excellent assessment there. Shame everyone else thought that what the original DP models needed was resolution rather than thinking about the photography side...

DP2M is about simplicity - best sensor / lens combo available in smallest package possible.

Exactly!

That's what I'm looking forward to... the resolution + sharp lens + smaller lighter 'package' than a DSLR! The rest is frills, at least for me.

I was struggling around on rocks on a short hike yesterday at Great Falls park (Virginia) with a big DSLR + heavy lens + heavy camera bag with more stuff (another L lens I didn't even use). Uggh.

I just hope that the output ---> processing pipeline in SPP is easier than the SD1/M seems to be.
Best regards, Sandy
