    This looks amazing, I was holding out for a NEX 7 but this may change my mind.

    There's also a new Olympus due soon that will be weatherproof and have a viewfinder. If it has a new sensor then that could be very tempting. Especially with so many nice and reasonably priced lenses available for micro 4/3.

    Feel like the Panasonic GX1 is too little too late.

    Canon are releasing a new G series instead. But they're being extra specially brave this time and not making it exactly the same as G9, G10, G11 and G12....

    Then they'll regret it and release a 650D that will be a 600D with a Digic 5 chip....

    They've got the exterior styling spot on I think, much nicer than all those smooth over styled things like the new nikons, or the just plain very ugly sony nex system.

    So is it any good :)

    Hmm looks like it is $1700 body only...boo!! Cheap compared to a leica M9 but not compared to a 5d MkII

    The total lack of mention of any AF system is worrying, suspect it's going to be slow, plus no IS on the sensor or lens.

    Still want one though

    Hmm x100 manual focus put me off, no real true rangefinder option puts you at the mercy of contrast af.

    Looks big and way too expensive which is a real shame.

    You can preorder for $1384 with the 35mm 1.4 lens.

    Couple of months after launch it will be pretty reasonable I reckon.

    Agreed, when the hype dies down the price will drop.

    It's not being made in Thailand under the water?

    Need to wait and see now to be honest. I've been spoiled by my 50D and USM lenses and I'm concerned how slow the AF on this might be. I was really hoping for the silent shutter of the X100 as well which this doesn't have.

    On the video's the shutter has not been used yet, suspect it makes a noise like a metro door being slammed.

    Looks quite interesting vs the NEX-7, might look at getting one if it comes in at the right price.
