And it won't be before time. If I shoot an event with the Z1 I can hold the cam way over my head or push it hard down into the bean bag on the ground, all the while looking directly perpendicular into the LCD screen.

Shooting a wedding the other day with my Canon DSLR I was struck with how horribly limiting the viewfinder options are. It was a case of holding and firing, then checking the results and then trying again. And again.

Here's my 5 and a half reasons.

1. Smaller form factor than my current rig (HV30+Brevis or XH-A1+Brevis)
2. Gorgeous DOF - way more so than an adapter can produce
3. Stills+Video - I can be a photographer - as well as shoot a bit of video at the same time. Or shoot video only. Great versatility.
4. Low-light capabilities
5. The 5DMII is also a great little 'home movie' or tourist camera
5.5 Tape-less workflow
