Would a piece of electrical tape over the red dot of a previous model and a screen protector yield a functional equivalent to this new model?
Or if buying new is a must, Fujifilm has no red dot and it might have better colour balance from the samples posted.
Isn't the red dot the reason "professional photographers" and "enthusiasts" buy these cameras? By leaving it out they've made a risky move. It'll probably be OK as long as they don't position themselves to compete against functional cameras.
