From the first pictures shot last week at the Paris fair, the quality is good. The viewfinder however could be better, look at the Olympus OM-D or the EVF-4 for the Olympus Pen 5. The feeling is good with one single but big drawback: it is quite impossible to change the focal range quickly, due to the extremely slow (4 sec!) fly-by-wire motor. I hope the next model (RX20 ?) will have this.

I heard that you can change the focal distance in steps e.g 24-->35-->50... which is quicker or if you turn the rung smoothly and gradually, its faster than trying to change it quickly.... (?)

I tried everything, with steps, with fly-and-wire, with the buttons near the release button. it is always 3.8 sec. Mechanical zooms I tried do the job in 0,4 to 0,75 sec.

Price in UK is now down to £725 after cash back so now comparable to the new Panasonic FZ1000 in price. Overall I still prefer the Sony to the FZ1000 so will be placing an order!
