It is taking them an exasperating long time to get this thing off the ground...from our point of view.  However, I remain guardedly optimistic that they will produce the camera we've been wanting.  As you point out here quite effectively, they went out on a limb and promised.  They almost HAVE to produce now.  I still think they will.  I just hope I live long enough to enjoy one of them.  They indicate that they will produce a true DSLR.

I've reached the point where I don't really care WHAT it is as long as it will properly focus my E lenses.

I think I'll go have a drink to that.

Had written a longer reply - second one today that DPR's buggy software has eaten.  Essence was that while W. and the other one or two top level statements were careful not to commit to a DSLR, it does seem that the near-magic hybrid and on-sensor dual-focus technologies haven't really worked out.

And that I'm having one with you!
