Excerpt: I admit, the autofokos was slow in 2009 and in 2015 measures it is dead slow. The menu is made for engineers - NOT humans. fortunately I am an engineer ;-) If i did not had one over the last 5 years - I would buy one today.

I liked that it was not ostentatious, and the large screen made it so that I didn't have to hold it up to my face all the time (looking like a tourist) but could...

Summary: This camera body is exactly as described and everything I hoped it would be at the best possible price. Using Konica AR to MFT lens adapters I have attached some of the best glass ever made from my 1970s 35mm film cameras.
