Is that real information? That would mean there is an LCD overlay covering the VF for displaying crop frames and such which turns dark without power.
Indeed and also to display additional information.

Oh oh oh, the big advantage of OVFs (for some) is gone: no looking anymore without a charged battery ...

I think @bxf was making a joke. 'Copy' as a noun versus 'copy' as a verb.
Yes, Kenspo. I knew what you meant, and my comment was definitely not directed specifically at your use of copy, but the way it is used when referred to lenses by "everybody".

To me, copy implies something that was created by copying (duh) something, and I don't believe lenses are thus constructed However, I must concede that it appears that there is no more appropriate word in the English language.

Considering it has been officially released and is being sold by many online stores, I would have been surprised if Ricoh had sent you another pre-production version

Oh man Im soooo jealous! Are you testing it at the concert with the K3 (II) or the K-FF? I really like to know how it feels on an aps-c Pentax in the pit. If you miss the short end of a 17-50 or sth like this or of its fine


Have fun with this little beauty and feel free to tell us how it behaved

In fact, that is what I was using in my head, but I had to abandon it after looking up its precise meaning.
