No. I do not want a wanabe Leica body with the viewfinder stuck out one side. I want the viewfinder in the middle, the obvious and best place for it. They could reduce the hump for sure I wouldn't have any problems with that. If Panasonic make a rangefinder style camera, I hope to heck they do not drop the mini DSLR style of camera for that - that would be a huge mistake.

Are you serius telling "viewfinder in the middle, the obvious and best place for it"?

The only valid reason to put viewfinder in the middle, on the lens, is to put pentaprism making a reflex camera. In a non reflex camera the obvius and best place is where the nose isn't forced to be pressed versus camera body.

No, the best place is in the middle on quite different grounds: For best head support and to minimize the risk of rotational movement when you press the shutter. And no, on cameras like the G3 and GH2, the nose isn't pressed against the camera body more than it should thanks for the comfortable, protruding eyepiece.

Do you have a nose?!

I do, and it's pretty flexible.
