Thanks to the AWESOMENESS that is amazon, I received it Friday. Got a chance to take some simple pictures, and I'm absolutely blown away! It's a very well designed camera. It's barely pocketable in shorts, not in jeans.

Calling the battery life a non-issue is a stretch. It is a non issue if you are going to carry a camera bag everywhere you go. This weekend, I had to constantly carry an extra battery in my pocket and charge the batteries at every possible opportunity. It is without a doubt, a major issue.

There are workarounds, but none as convenient as decent battery life.

That said, I am glad I did not wait and bought this camera right away. The keeper rate seems to be really high, and I can most definitely feel the 'special foveon' look.

Soon, I'm going to be doing some comparisons to my existing gear and make some hard choices.
