I'm actually happy about this... I prefer high ISO ability to super sharpness. Regarding manual focus Huss...I agree. LCD only cameras and manual focus are the worst possible combination for me.

I am intrigued by this camera. It is very small and the 45mm 2.8 is kind of perfect for me. I’d have to check it out in person. Not sure if I’d want to use it with only an lcd though I have before.
