why cant someone just give us the details on how the viewfinder and MF differs from the X100 and we'll all know for sure if this is something to even bother with...?
tulo: push button interfaces really push my buttons!no sale for you panasonic - and dont come back until you added some proper controls!
yes - i'll never manage to happely buy crap, but that's how things are made nowadays it seems...
no. what makes you think that?
Lan: Is the display autostereographic, or is it 2d/glasses? I can't tell from the spec above...
my take is that the minuscule stereo base is choosen to hide the fact that the touch display doesnt show proper 3D.
how well would a touch screen work on a autostereographic display anyway? the tactile and visual feedback when touching the actual display surface would totally mess with depth perception.

Bryan Campbell: I'm curious to see how this compares to RED's cameras.
Also note that Engadget says the 3 new primes will work on our still cameras... Assuming that wasn't an error. The new 50mm 1.3L this could be the 50mm that everyone has been begging for.
Engadget " 7:41PM There's three EF prime lenses as well, 24mm, 50mm, and 85mm models. They also work well with EOS still image cameras as well. "
"The new 50mm 1.3L this could be the 50mm that everyone has been begging for."couldnt it just be the 50/1.2L that already exists in a new packaging?
Ashley Pomeroy: Coo - but is that 35mm full-frame, or another format?
if it is a super-35 sensor, it should be closer to APS-C in DSLR terms
i'd be interested in a viewer like this one if it also had a 3D image editing interface.
tkbslc: Okay, it sorta makes sense on the dedicated video camera since Panasonic doesn't have any f2.8 zooms. But for still shots, well, there are a lot of nice used Canon bodies you can get for the $440 price tag. might as well just get the real thing.
olympus got a couple of /f2.0/ zooms though. (in 4/3 mount)
tulo: i never managed to understand the use of "toe-in"/converging optical axis for close focusing like in the Sony TD10. it is the OA of the viewer's eyes that are supposed to converge, giving a sense of depth - not the OA of imaging device, is it?
"converges the position on the 3D plane"what is that supposed to mean?

i dont care much for GRD, but this must bode well for the GXR II...
"...the first model from the new family of lenses developedspecifically for Micro Four Thirds system."
*every time* i see a gallery preview matrix like the one is this post, i try to click a specific image expecting to get a view of that one in particular.*every time* i get confused and a litte disappointed when i realise that i'm going to have to go through the entire gallery to refind the image i was interested in...
i think you (dpreview.com staff) should reconsider how these gallery previews are functioning and/or presented.
