Summary: Expensive? Yes, which means it DROPs a verdict star down to lack of value for money. Unique? Yes. But is it any good? No, it is simply superb. It is a great enthusiasts' camera, or the (almost) perfect professional’s back up instrument. Your only problem now will be finding one. Epson Europe tells us that they are almost sold out with no current plans for a replacement, though we believe that there are still a handful for sale in the UK.
Pros: Excellent magnesium alloy build, good 6MP sensor, accepts Leica M and L-mount lenses (L-mount lenses via an adapter), RAW capture
Cons: Slow menu system, fully manual control may not be to everyone’s liking.
