I'm right on the fence with this camera. I think it's slightly more versatile than the Mk 1 and would offer some great felexibility in low light with superb image quality with a fixed lens, including a great Macro lens. But there are some things I don't like about it (LCD, 24mm, noise-reduction algorithm etc). The links to samples that were posted here on the forum in the wee hours this morning really impress me.

I'd have thought a step wider than 28mm could only increase its appeal - it certainly does for me. Basically this is a fast lens that covers 90% of my hobby/social/landscape/macro photography. I'm interested in why it's a negative for you - would you want more telephoto?

The only think I can think of is that someone would prefer 28mm f2 instead of 28mm f2.8 (which is what it drops to).  But for a travel camera, more wide angle can only be a positive in my book.
