    The mock-up shows a form factor that many have been talking about as long as Micro-4/3 has existed (and particularly since the introduction of the GF1) -- a rangefinder-like body with built-in EVF. Fujitsu did it, and I think the X-E1 and X-Pro1 have been well received from a usability standpoint. If Panasonic do it with the GX2, I think they would sell scads of them.
    Best regards,

    Apparently, it will have a "titlable" EVF!

    Fujitsu is an IT company. Fujifilm made the X-Pro1 and X-E1, etc.

    Oops! My bad. Of course, I was thinking of the X-Pro1 and X-E1, and should have mentioned the NEX 6 and 7 as additional examples of mirrorless cameras with range-finder-like form factors and built-in EVF's. I think it would be great to have this alternative in the M-4/3 world, where the variety of native lens choices is extensive, and lens IQ is mostly excellent.
