I've been lusting for a new camera, but only now have I an inkling what I truly want.

Which brings me to my pet peeve: If a camera doesn't have a prism, its EVF better be modular or I'll want nothing to do with it! Period. End of discussion. If I even suspect that a manufacturer's designers are being instructed by its marketing department to make something that "looks like a DSLR" because that's "what our focus groups keep telling us they like," then forget it -- I won't buy it. (I realize built-in EVFs have to located somewhere -- just not THERE!)

Funny.  Put the EVF anywhere else and I'll hate the camera, just as I hated the GX7.  Why?  Because I grew up using SLRs so it is simply the ergonomic paradigm that feels most natural to me.  Sure, there may be a few people who look at me snapping away with my E-M5 and think "look at that guy with his pretend pentaprism" but the insecurities lie with them, not with me.
