The built-in flash to bounce position, that's a neat feature.

don't think this L1 looks very promising. More like and e330 cloned and slightly different features. wonder how much will this cost considering the Leica lens is included in the kit...

the shutter lag is abt 1 sec.......:faint:
was hoping panasonic would came up with a killer dslr that
will match the competitors in speed and frame rate...

Haiz...somehow the tripod screw is so close to the LCD side; off-centre. Don't know will it have stability problem when the lense is heavy type.

old press release said that it will be priced near canon 20D.

it's a different league from sony a100. (D50 competitor)

personally, i'm excited about the camera.
it's the vintage controls layout that will make it sell.
e330 is far far away.

only worry is image noise.
i wouldn't care about the frame rate as it will be shooting in manual mode that i am interested in.
this camera is not meant to be high frame rate shoot and choose type.
it's the shoot in manual and shoot in fast type.

users with old canon system and nikon system will understand what i mean.

The live view mode is not design for action shots in this case. So you will have to stick with KM .... or Sony now :devil: .

But I like the built in camera bounce, why can't other brands design like that???

i think the next FZ series camera might take care of that...lots of weird rumors about the next Fz in august or something.

I had high hopes on the L1 but now I'm disappointed with the dim viewfinder caused by the liveview feature. :(

It can't be dimmer than the E-330 and I don't find the E-330 dim at all compared to all the other DSLRs that I have used thus far and so I think the L1 would do just fine.

What Phil Askey is lamenting about is that the L1 took the risk of dimming the viewfinder and yet didn't put in a second CCD like the E-330 in its implementation of the Live View feature.

But design-wise, this camera is a dream-come-true for old-timers who still yearn for the good old days of analog controls in film SLRs. Those who have handled the LC1 would know what I mean. The LC1 is a pure work of art and a joy to use for those who appreciate the beauty and simplicity of its design. In this respect, I'm sure that the L1 will not disappoint.

I, for one, would be looking forward to owning one soon .... and it would certainly form a matching set with my LC1. ;)

Any idea how much is the retail price?

I really love the look. If it function well as any normal conventional camera in normal mode, I don't really bother with the live-view and 1 sec delay in shutter release. I may just get it.
