I went to one of the shops to check the camera out and I quite like it, but using it with my MF primes that is...I tested A50 1.7 and M85 f/2 on it and the focus peaking is interesting but using green button for my M glass seems a bit weird with the green button position.

I believe you can swap the functions on the buttons. I know you can assign a bunch of different functions, and I think you can have the red button stop down the aperture. You might want to check that and see.

Russ: I believe the Red Button can do DoF Preview but only the Green Button can meter. IMHO the Green Button is easily reachable without contorting my finger or altering my grip. Given my grip style that isn't surprising - the amera isn't against my face, so my right hand is very light on the grip. My left hand carries all the weight and stability duty.
