Very interesting camera. The EVF-only setting to conserve battery life sounds like a step in the right direction for battery life, depending on how long it takes to wake up.

Concerning size, there's a limit to how small you can make something and still have it usable by human hands. Especially gloved hands; my K-30 is pushing too small in winter.

Oddly enough I stopped in to my local camera shop to look at a couple mirrorless cameras to see if i could learn to live with an EVF. They're not there for me yet, despite testing what I can only assume is close to the top of the line in the Olympus EM-1 mk2. Face tracking and detection worked superbly, but there was still lag while panning and, while I'm sure you can turn this off somewhere in the menu labyrinth) the quick preview of what was captured in the EVF threw me off considerably. And it's still like watching photography through a TV screen. Maybe this camera will be better? I also have a hard time thinking about buying a $1700 camera with a m43 sensor when there are great aps-c and full frame sensor'd cameras in that price range, especially considering i'd be buying new lenses as well.
