Hi All,

After a considerable absence I read about the MX-1 in BJP and decided to check back in.

Also with Winter on it's way out, I'm more inclined to get the K-5 out.

Regards,

John.

Cheers smc,

I've read the BJP description (which seemed to imply a fixed 28mm lens equivalent) and the dpreview 'pre-view' which mentioned a 28-xxx zoom.

I'm considering a camera of that type for when the K-5 (and extras) is too bulky and initially liked the look of it. My big problem is the lack of a viewfinder, makes it very difficult for me to get enthusiastic about it. It might not be necessary with the titling screen etc... but I just can't see me being comfortable without one.

I do like the basic design, size (as I envisage it anyway), logo and description of the build ethos though. I'll definitely be having a look at one when available.
