    Now if they would just release some decent pancake primes for that mount... :thumbup:

    That's right, every time a camera like this gets released I always think "what about the lenses?"

    maybe they don't focus on the lenses because they view mirrorless as for "non-serious" photographers. Like if you're "serious" about photography to want a good prime lens, you'll buy one of their DSLRs. I'm not saying I agree, but a DSLR-centric camera company, that may be their line of thinking.

    It's basicly the same size as the Sony A5100 and the sensor is about the same quality, maybe a bit worse. But it does have Dual Pixel AF and the 22mm pancake lens is much better than the Sony pancake options.

    I thought the original M was a good camera except for the terribly slow AF. I assume they have fixed that by now. My big problem with this system is the lens selection overall compared to mu43.
