Re: What's the beef with 24mm wide?

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?

Shoot the Light fantastic

It's not only 24mm, what makes this camera so attractive, at least for me. The lens as whole is in my opinion a reason to get that camera. Similar lens for any similar interchangeable camera would cost at least as much as this camera. Of course, for someone who already has the first model it might be a painful solution to throw it away.
