Vitruvius: HOLY Karamba! "optional optical viewfinder for $450"!!!, " lens hood adapter $130"!!!. That is INSANE!
Goes to prove that this camera is mostly for people with extra money that don't know what to spend it on.
Seriously Leica viewfinders are about $250 online..
if someone can explain what's in a viewfinder that makes it more expensive than the average lens
This has to be a japanese virus that was spread by Sigma - cameras priced double of market
How about this - Nikon V1 with lens and electronic VF = $299 street price.
Im sure this is a nice camera. They are all good nowadays HOWEVERenough is enough with the cute little design where you have to pinch your camera with 2 fingers and risk losing it in any situation other than a dinner at the table situation. Seriously do the engineers test those things out on a boat, on a bike, on the street, one hand only, getting it in and out of a pocket, a bag ? I don't think they do.. they just re-hash and re-hash the same old 'design' I can design a 100 times better camera with better controls layout and ergonomics. Seriously, all Im gonna do is put a ISO dial and a usable grip..who cares if it fits in a girl purse so thanks but no thanks, you want $800 - make a camera that's usable and sturdyToo little, too late, too generic.
