Well, a serious and inexcusable campaign by Bertie, Vivek, Arne, Cindy, Brian and others was too much for me - I cracked, it arrived this lunchtime.
The accountant was here, everybody was working, so I slipped out with the dog for half an hour.
I haven't opened the book yet - there wasn't really time. It took a while to work out how to change the front dial from exposure compensation to Aperture . . . and when I'd figured it out I couldn't stop doing it!
Nice rubbery body (how soon will it rub off?). Dinky! Solid - erm. really rather nice. I'd be surprised, except that I would have expected others here to complain if it wasn't.
It's very quick - even writing RAW+jpg - focusing is fast as well, it's the first EVF I've every found bearable - what's really odd is that it's realistic enough to feel real . . . then when you take a shot you get the review up really fast. It's like you're looking at the world through a viewfinder . . . and it suddenly stops!
First impressions are that the 14-45 lens is stellar . . . and the 45-200 less so, but we'll see.
Can't get Aperture to read the raw files (even after converting to DNG with the new ACR converter). The JPG's don't look bad though, so I'll use them and save any relevant raws until Apple get their act together.
Here are a couple of colour shots:
All these were shot using daylight white balance and some setting or other which I haven't found yet.
Last one at 400 ISO others at 100.
and here are a few monochrome shots:
