Re: One can only hope that...

The spec. of the RX10 is indeed exciting, with one glaring exception - it's weight - 870gm I think I read - the downside of trying to put a long lens on a 1" sensor. I am a fairly satisfied FZ200 owner, getting older and frailer, who already finds it's 580 gm a bit too much. Although an amazingly versatile machine, I could do with a bit more IQ - especially for portraits.

SO......I'm hoping this new Oly Stylus will be heading down towards 400 gm or less with the larger sensor providing that little bit of better IQ I'm looking for. Constant f2.8 would indeed be nice to have, but will increase the weight, so perhaps a compromise of, say, f4 at the long end would suit me.

I'm greatly looking forward to the 29th.
