Hi,

Lurking here to watch the rumors evolve......hopefully into reality.  However, I wouldn't pay a premium price for any camera based on specs.  I need to see it in hand and read some tests of its performance.  The retail price in Australia is also critical to me - we often have to pay a painful premium over US prices.  If the premium is too high, then it's stick with APSC for a while......

This is a new system.  The lenses are part of the package.  The 35mm may well interest me, but I would really want a small, high grade 24mm as well and none has been tipped.  I'm not so sure about getting 24mm via the Zeiss zoom unless it really is stellar.  And if not, that leaves RF and DSLR 24mm primes, and we don't yet know how either type of lens will perform on the new sensor.  This will be critical information from early owners.
