I was ready to go out and get this camera, pending a good review. It would fit well with the rest of my Panny gear. The kit lens possibly could be replaced with the 20mm, and I can get along without IS, but there's nothing to be done about the rear LCD and the bad dial, except re-design. I wonder if they could build and sell a similar-sized camera with a viewfinder, but no LCD, using the saved space from the LCD for the viewfinder and its electronics? Perhaps a flip-up viewfinder like on the GX7, that is carried flipped-down into a body notch? Probably increase the cost, though, and given the training everybody's gotten with camera-back LCDs, maybe it wouldn't be possible (in terms of marketing) to omit one, even if you could chimp through the viewfinder. Another possibility would be a built-in lens hood, I suppose, but I don't have much faith in that idea.
Rats. I was looking forward to this.
