Seems like the top screen is a bit better implemented than on the model we saw in New York. Still wondering about the dial though. Does it have a display?

Yes Queenstown looking south across Kelvin peninsula but I'd have expected a lot of snow on the mountains in Sep-Nov (think March-May in northern hemisphere). Looks more likely for January to March down there, so could be new. Where's Kiwi Ross when you need him?
Its definitely Queenstown. No snow and grass is still green means it was taken around November or early December I'd say.

I don't see any difference:

I'm quite certain the dial doesn't have an LCD on top.

The new york model had a metal edge inside the top display edge. No lcd on the dial, no but maybe (o)led.

I can't see an edge in any of the images, though.
Nope, no screen at all I'm afraid.

as has been said, it's not got any lettering or anything simply because it scrolls through the variables set by the big dial next to the prism - that dial makes no sense without a second one to modify the settings on it.

So why does it have a separate edge and middle part and isn't just a one piece dial with a symbol on it?

Though I don't want a full frame this is a good and lean mean looking machine. Nice design.

Looks like it now has two front dials. Hadn't noticed that before.

I'm not 100% sure Ron, but the Maldives could well be closer to you in Holland than me in Melbourne.

True. There seems to be something new there in that image.

But I don't see any new front dials in other body images on the teaser site, like the (slightly brightened) pic below:

Core Values

Thought I'd stop by to read the community's reaction to the Full-Frame samples. Found what would seem to be the right thread, and got about 200 posts in before I gave up on finding any discussion of the photos.

Seriously, what the hell was I thinking?
