Re: Easy - a popup EVF

Seems pretty easy to me. You have a "slim" body that has a built-in popUP EVF. If you want to maintain the slim lines, you use LCD. Want to use EVF? Pop it up.

So, it wouldn't be really external because it's built into the camera, but it's not really internal because you can't use it in the stowed position.

This would be my guess too. Pop up, fold out, whatever. An internal VF that can be "put away" so it does not jut out the back like the VF on the G3. Keeps the body slim.

I just hope that if it uses some new display panel, the rest of us get a VF-5 with the same tech.
