hahaha... and don't forget something about it being the best camera (of its kind) ever. I stopped reading his site. Nothing personal, but you hit the nail on the head.

I just can't get into this camera... and I don't know why. $3000 may be the reason why.

Not convinced. The form of this camera is off for me.
Why not have a shutter speed dial like a camera has. (And VF of course)

Does anyone actually ever use scene modes? That top dial is gone to waste.

I didn't get past The BEST jpeg camera EVER! I wonder if he likes "5hr Energy?"


I think my life will change if I buy it, though.

having never touched this camera, clearly it's the idea of it that attracts me. a relatively small and simple package, with my favourite focal length lens attached, great imaging capability...

While I may have posted this for those who are interested in the camera... W/o the built in evf like nex6 or xe1, I am not interested in buying it. I am keeping tabs on it though to c how it is received and how the other manufacturers react. I applaud Sony for making this camera.

I am pretty happy with what I have in the Fuji xp1 and the sigma DP Merrill series for all my digital af requirements.
