Re: My wacky thought on a proper mirror less replacement to a DSLR

Your idea sounds quite good. I am quite a bit wondering if an EVF is really necessary if you have a nice big display. I remember me using a Bronica 645 and I was amazed by the beautiful "display" (the view on the focusing screen using a waist level focusing finder) ... and if you wanted you could put a viewfinder on top (sounds a bit similar to your Horseman viewfinder).

The EVF (a 2.36M dot OLED unit) on the Fuji X-E1 is really good, I think.  And the only Fuji lens I have for it, the 18-55 zoom is really good, too.

The hoodman loupe on the back display would be great for a SD1 and any DPxM while live-view focusing.  Of course at this point the SD1 does not have any sort of live-view at all.

This is something that really bothers me about the SD1.  I don't care whether they do it with a mirrorless or with a SD1 II, but I think the entire SA-mount lens line would benefit.  Besides, I have a significant investment in SA-mount lenses and I'm tired of manually focusing and I'm tired of focus bracketing too.
