  1. This looks like a beautiful, functional camera. I hope they send you one to review. Your reviews are always honest, trustworthy and insightful.

  2. Looks interesting, could be a good partner for my trusty Canon. XF-30. The 705 was just a little to big for liking & work. Hope the EVF is good as I shoot in bright daylight. Hope to see it at NAB, if NAB happens (hope it will, hotel booked).
