    Still a sow’s ear. MIcro Four Turdists rejoice! Now you have a crippled NEX-6 clone of your very own! Hey if you’re lucky Hasselblad may choose it to make a shell for!

    LMAO!!! These Micro Four Turd cameras are such an insult to photography.

        Why would someone with the name camerageek say something like that? Thanks to m43, entire mirrorless segment would not exist.

          Hmmmm I’ve been using mirrorless since oh 1973. It’s called Leica and Rollieflex. Obviously you are an unwashed peasant

        Actually I’ve had a review unit for two weeks now. It’s the same as every other Micro Four Turds camera I have ever reviewed – horse crap IQ married to some really nice tech. Shame the tech is wasted on such a camera, especially the Near Field connection abilities (really near flawless with an iOS device). They need to get a real sensor.

        It is a lot like a NEX 6 in control layout and design. Props on the tilting screen and VF, but still crap IQ compared to the APS-C units you can buy for the same price in the mirrorless segment.
