M4NH4CK: As an active Sony A7 III user, this looks like a weird trade-off with inexplicable targeting.

1) No dual slots is bad, I would've lost a few shoots if it hadn't been for the dual slots. 2) Lack of customizable buttons - but why? A tiny button is no engineering miracle, and I use more than half of them all the time on the A7 III. 3) No second dial - a dealbreaker, I always shoot manual and often in challenging light conditions. 4) Low-res EVF - can live with it, using the screen mostly, but the A7 III EVF quality is already stretching it, IMO. 5) Ergonomics... just sad. I am actually fine with A7 III menus and grip, but come on, Sony! It's year 2020! Start innovating in interfaces already! Ugh.

In the end, this looks like a potentially passable camera for P&S shooters seeking to maximize low light and DoF potential with a small, bright prime. Attach a typical travel zoom to it, and you've ruined its main selling point.

I may sound old-fashioned but the lack of custom buttons is a deal-breaker.
Is this a point-and-shoot camera?

Is it just me or the X100V shows more CA in the first picture?
