CameraLabTester: What this review (and any other online reviews) can't demonstrate is the amazing use of the Hybrid Finder.

It is something one has to test in real life in order to appreciate all the explanations that are in the review articles such as this one.

In this World of precise imaging and framing, encountering parallax error and the use of the optical rangefinder view is as exotic as driving a classic vintage car.

This camera offers the best of both viewfinder Worlds.

.

Yes. And only Fuji has really tried to advance the state of viewfinders. Canon and Nikon just chug along. This is similar to the late film days when Contax G came up with a viewfinder that telescoped to the focal length of the lens in use (non-SLR autofocus).

The Leica RF is a marvel and I have used some of the best non-Leica RFs of the photomechanical era (Konica III; Bessa R; Fuji 690) BUT Leica didn't advance the principle. How about a true RF that shows 80 percent the field of view of the lens in use; 20 percent surround for composing.

Interesting how jealousy, pettiness comes through in comments.

"classic focal length mimicking primes"
One of the silliest trying to be cute phrases I have ever read on DPReview. They are not mimicking anything, but achieving something.

Fuji is to be admired for emphasizing prime lenses in traditional focal lengths. Are Canon's or Nikon's 35mm lenses mimics?

Gesture: Thanks for showing the hybrid viewfinder. BRAVO FUJI for trying to expand the viewfinder.

Yes. My fault. Meant to say "expanding the concept of the viewfinder."

Great effort. Shows the agility of modern contract manufacturing. Glad to see some new ideas and efforts.

95 percent viewfinder coverage. Actually, I'm impressed.

Catch them in stock, but some nice values including SL1, which I'd almost recommend over this:

Panasonic is creating the modern enthusiast camera: great balance of sensor, size, ergonomics, technology.

Gesture: This is the future of enthusiast cameras. Panasonic understands EVF, being the first to create the "digital Nikon FM" so many were crying for yet didn't appreciate what they had once it was created (As with Samsung NX10, NX20 ...), as well as the wonderful integral corner EVFs on compact cameras.

Just like my Nikon P60!!!!!

I was speaking to form factor. But very good points and a shame how manufacturers do that to this day. Another example, perhaps, Canon EOS-M.

Some folks get things. Some don't. The Panasonic G, like the last and most compact generation of film SLRs was compact, great ergonomics, excellent layout and EVF in place of mirror and prism. Those who've had a Samsung NX10, NX20, etc, would understand. Discrete, compact, easy to palm, agile cameras. I read many a time on this web site-give me something like a digital version of the Nikon FM, thus the analogy.

I still think this "flagship" model should also draw people to the APS-C models.

In reply to:

AmateurMike: I'm intrigued by the catch-in-focus. Is there any camera out there that has a similar feature, except allows choosing a focus point/area on a touchscreen?

The Pentax DSLR is a thoughtful camera. Maybe, the Subaru of cameras. Practical. Good value for price. The Green button and Trap Focus: nice touches.

In reply to:

belle100: I have doubt that this will work for Canon lenses because it is printed clearly "DESIGNATED SIGMA LENSES ONLY" on the adapter.
Perhaps Sigma can make a different version that will do with Canon lenses and charge a much high price. And yet, make another version and charge even higher for those Nikonese.

Canon mount, made by Sigma lenses. Also, seems like a bit of a trial balloon. If this goes over, maybe others. But as indicated the Sigma lens mount is much like the Canon. Either Canon didn't object, a royalty is paid or no infringements.
