I like the footprint. The evf is a bit funky but usable. The pinch zoom is useful if one wants to take different perspective shots of the same subject live as opposed to cropping later. Never had or handled A Leica Q but the Sigma implementation of pinch zoom is a richer one in terms of variety but probably a bit more difficult to use on the fly. You'll get different crops of the same image so the objects in the image are not zoomed only cropped. It's a good demonstration for those who struggle with understanding that an apsc camera does not take larger images at the same focal length than a full frame camera.

That's all for now. Starting home tomorrow via Death Valley and highway 395 along the Eastern Sierra. DV is already hot, 106 yesterday. 395 will be cooler and there should still be a good deal of snow on the upper elevations.

By the way I don't know if the original fp had this feature or not. But if a menu option is grayed out on the fp l you can get a list of conflicts by pushing the > key. Nice feature.

I've been to America twice, both times I visited death valley to find it as cold and overcast as London in autumn. Bit of a let down. Especially the first time when we has read so many dire warnings that we filled the car boot up with 60 litres of water bottles in case we broke down.
