V2 vs V1
2

I just got my V2 to replace my V1. Unfortunately I got it after the soccer games this weekend but just playing around with it seems a worthy upgrade.

It feels better in the hand even with the Fotodiox grip on the V1 although the camera could be a bit bigger for better ergonomics. With the grip and the EVF it's not comfortably pocketable except in a jacket anyway. My pinky has no where to be on the V2 while on the V1 it had somewhere to grip. I'll have to fiddle with how I hold it.

I have gotten used to forced image review and half shutter press but it's just nice to have it gone.

Anyway, long story short, another V1 owner happily converted (so far) to the V2. I still need to get used to the controls being different and shoot more but so far pretty good.
