Thanks for the link Mistral!
The camera looks pretty much like the GR cameras of the past, but the lens seems to be pretty good, judging by the sample photos. The camera also has internal ND filter. And the whole camera is really small. Really tempting.

Yes...Just 1.2 mm thicker.
GRDIV was 109 x 60 x 33 mm with sensor 1/1.7". The dimensions are changed just a bit. But the sensor is much bigger now.

I took some screen grabs for our viewing and discussion pleasure:















It is actually only 2mm higher and deeper than the current GRD, while having a little extra 8mm width to fit the lens/sensor which is a bit more shifted to the middle compared to the GRD.

No. I've changed with right specs. You quoted my post under correction.

It could be the button located on the AEL/C=AF lever if that is a button. The Play button which used to be there is now located over inder the -/+ lever.

You know what I really like about that video, it's talking about the camera as a real photographic tool not just a consumer device.

I wonder which 16MP APS-C sensor it has, though. Is it the same as K-30? Does it record as many bits as K-5? Because if this thing has a sensor to compete with the K-5 and can save raws, it would be a very tempting camera in a tiny package.
Oh, and I think there is a video mode available on the mode dial, there is a little camera icon. I like that it has some advanced features, too. P, Av, Tv, TAv (!!), M, video, green mode, and three MY modes.
Also has a hotshoe. Just not quite sure about the effects button. With a camera like that, I would mostly shoot raw, so effects would be just a nuisance (I assume "effects" is just digital filters)

If it had an interchangeable lens system that let me use my Q lenses and an APS-C sensor I'd be sold. Looks pretty good either way and I'd probably take it over the MX-1 even though I think that camera has better styling.

Will GR work with VF-1?


Or maybe new EVF?

I suspect that is the AEL/AFL "lock" button.
