Ok...just got it, charged the battery for over an hour...might have put it in the charger wrong. I charged the battery and even after an hour and a half....I had about 1/3 battery. I put the battery label up but I think that might have been wrong. There is a triangle on the charger on one side and a triangle on the battery...this time I put them so that they were on the same side....the battery is upside down in the charger now...hopefully I won't blow anything up. Also...my first impression of the camera...confusing menu system. wow. I tried setting a few things, tried to take a few images while the battery held out...wasn't very successful. Is it possible to zoom focus while in AF? Also....this is ONE SMALL CAMERA...it feels very cramped in my hand...very clumsy. I'm thinking that if I keep it, I'd definitely like to buy a hand grip that bolts to the bottom. As for the EVF...it's definitely passable, it even works pretty well with my glasses on...I DO MISS a real viewfinder though...not sure if that will go away soon; we'll see. After I charge up and try and take an image I'll post what I have.
