This could be the M-9 for the rest of us.

Ths could be the answer to my camera dreams.

If only the optical viewfinder were reliable, it would be a non brainer for me. Let's see what turns out.

Brett St Pierre: The important things with this compact is the optical viewfinder and the manual zoom, both of which are sadly hard to find anymore yet without them compacts are simply awful to use. I am not just being traditional, these simply work better. At the price I'd be somewhat tempted to get one for a bit of fun.

I absolutely agree bout optical viewfinders. Let's hope that this one is accurate.

The 2.7 multiplier makes the use of any wide F mount lenses ridiculous. Are they imitating Pentax. It may have it's followers but this is not for me. They should have bitten the bullet and gone 4/3. That would have made the camera larger but much better.

Looks real nice especially as an all around and travel camera. I have taken the Olympus R PL-2 on my second trip to Italy and found it superb. However I also took the wide zoom that I really never used. I felt like I was carrying the old DSLR's on the trip. I have recently been converted to the travel as light as possible faction and I'm very happy. This could make me even happier. I hope it retains the fabulous Fuji colors and JPEGS.

It seems to me another example when Leica missed the boat and arrived late. It should have been Leica to be the first FF camera. Kodak had the sensor and instead of fooling around with Fiuji as it later did with Panasonic where identical product came out only branded Leica and with a higher price tag, Leica could have been there at the start. I realize the the company was on the ropes at that time but it was a moment lost forever. The M-8 was a failure nd the M-9 it too pricey and although a great camera it's outside the budgets of many. It is also in a precarious marketing place. It Voigtlander comes out with a true RF like it tried before under the Epson brand but with more up to date features and with FF, it could relegate Leica back to the "collector's" camera category where it was for many years. It's too bad.

I hope it has at least a good EVF otherwise it's useless for me.

I have never seen any skin tones reproduced better than Fuji sensors. If they could make larger sensors ie FF on their bodies they would surely have real winners. They do have the know how and ability to do this.

I just do not get the small sensor idea at all.
