Great circle of life? Always found the GM5 reminiscent of the Leica IIIc, especially the radiused ends. Although it's the Pen F that borrows the shutter speed dial.



“Most of the time”  Panasonic uses “retro” where it is the best choice and not “retro” because it invokes some faint recollections of the style that was once used as a very necessary need caused by mechanical control.

Such things as mechanical shutter speed dials and mechanical EV dials are arguably not really necessary on digital camera bodies other than to check their setting when the camera is switched off. Surely serious photographers should know where they left their camera set, have switch on standard known configurations, or re-set their cameras to known configurations when they close them down for the day?
