Sorry, but did you figure out how you would use all these Fuji wheels and buttons ?
Blocked control wheels for sensitivity and speed ?
Video shooting, unless having delicate piano-fingers ?
Impossible to reach exposure matrix control lever?

=> Spending more time to look and search and manipulate, than to shoot through the EVF, doesn't appear to be of any photographical efficiency... but that's mho.
Done it for years with Film Cameras, I certainly do not have to take my eye off the finder to change settings on my Nikon FE......

I don't know about you but I shoot mostly manual or aperture priority with spot metering.

If this camera is customisable one can set aperture with the back wheel, exposure compensation with the front wheel on Av and see the corrections live through the EVF…is that good or what?
I had been put off by EVFs until recently when I handled the NEX-7 and the OM-D E-M1; I am beginning to think that the disavantage of framing through a TV set might be compensated by the large image, the extra info and the ablity to have an instant feedback whenever whe change a certain parameter like depth of field, WB or exposure compensation.

My DA20-40 is the gem. It's one of the best lens Pentax ever made. It's better than DA primes.

There is only one fly in the ointment. Required AF correction even with K-5IIs. I've corrected it, but I hope for new firmware for better phase focusing.

Ogl, we agree: this lens is the bomb! We are driving around for job interviews today in Richmond Virginia and it is 5℉ with wind chill and only the K3, 20-40, and smc 70 is with us. Incredible shots, no worries about the snow and cold.

Wow, that's a really strong endorsement, coming from a user who owns the FA*24, F28, DA 40, FA43, DA70, FA 77, and DFA100WR-- all widely praised and respected lenses. Dammit, now I have to add the DA20-40 to my LBA list...

Glad you like it. I share your opinion, mine is very good too and easily outperforms DA 21. I wonder why it has been rated so bad in Adam's review.
