    Tis a big lad, kind of like the Leica Q on steroids and the 24-90 is,
    well, expletive deleted monstrous :eek: I had a quick peek through
    the Electronic Viewfinder and, whilst I was expecting …. actually,
    not sure what I expected, but it wasn't … "well, knock me over with
    a feather" material.

    Now, this is coming a non-Leica fanboy -- d'uh ;) -- but, the lads
    at shop, some of who are very Leica knowledgeable and, ever so
    slightly, Leica fanboys, have got the kit for a few days to have a
    fiddle with it. So, upon my return to the shop on Saturday, I shall
    get their thoughts and opinions on the camera/lens combo. :)

    Cheers,

    Jack

    Well, our favourite magazine gives it a pretty massive "thumbs-down" in the in-depth review this week.

    I'm not sure how 4 stars becomes a "massive thumbs down". The conclusion was that it was a niche camera aimed at working pros, which is fair enough, not every camera has to be mass market.

    Yeah, I was struggling with understanding Eric's reading of the review, and agree with your interpretation.
