    Yeah, I guess it was clear that they would release the X-M1 and the pancake as a bundle and now it seems more likely that the lack of aperture ring is due to keeping the price low. I just hoped they could make a X-M1+27mm only kit as well.

    why does the first schematic of rx100mk2 look like the lens is different, like it does not retract into the body?

    • looh

      Because it’s the RX1R.
