Finally a compact mirror-less with a real EVF, that tilts no less, and a tilting LCD. I have no use for a camera without an eye-level viewfinder, or available only as an expensive option. With arthritis, it’s hard enough to hold a camera out in front of the body for any length of time, let alone framing/composing a photo, especially on a moving subject. I’ve never owned a Panasonic camera but have always been impressed with the quality of their electronic products. My living room TV is a Panasonic plasma that is impressive, and I still have the Panasonic AM/FM transistor radio that I received as a Christmas gift at age 14 in 1965, even the dial light still works. I’ll be keeping an eye on this series, no pun intended.
