I like it. Now I would like a line of pancakes to go with it please.
Like a 24 or 28 equiv, couple that with the 40 and maybe a longer pancake. Then I would be happy since it can also take my existing canon zooms and primes.
That does make a lot of sense to existing canon eos owners, maybe more so than investing in another system like mu4/3.
Yes, I have been waiting for this module to complement my GXR kit.
Since I'm sure it's a collapsable lens it will be sufficiently compact. That combined with the excellent handling and adjustable GXR body. Bring it on.
I don't care about the 16MP versus 12MP, both are fine for my use.
I understand that the GXR is not everybodies favourite camera (it's one of mine) but there is no use bashing about that. Then just move on and buy something else.
Another interesting M4/3rds camera. Before I also wanted this type of body to include the EVF. Now I'm not so sure, since there are other options.
When looking at the NEX-7, the EVF sticks-out significantly. Size wise I then see the G3 as a viable competitor. With the more compact lenses of the M4/3 (the pancakes and the foldable zooms) the G3 should be comparable to smaller then the NEX.
I also think that an external EVF is no shame either. Allows you to take a smaller package when you want to. (I do that with my Ricoh GX and GXR). This price tag however is a bit hefty on the external EVF's.
Choices, choices.... All in all I see the M4/3rds platform making nice progress (good variety in lenses and bodies)..
Nice options with the 2 lenses and sensors. Would love to see a hands-on review on this one. I'm curious as how easy the UI is, setting 2 different zoom levels etc...
I would think that having 2 sensors could also come in handy for HDR.
Next how about shallow depth of field? That should be possible with some image processing of the 2 stereo pictures I would think.
First Fuji now Panasonic, who's next?
