Grazie, I guess I can see what u mean, but itís too front heavy IMO.

I tried the same sort of thing with Bronica lens bellows; it looked pretty much identical to that.

Not on a tripod Richard - and even going handheld, the rods allow one to grip the front really well.
No problems whatsoever...

Let's not get bogged down about the way a camera looks, shall we? Surely it's how they take pictures and record sound that's important...
-though mind you, I'd prefer a dark colour on a camera any day ;-)

Well Grazie, you started it ... yeah?
Going on about how quiet it was in XM2 land - remember?
You're right, it is quiet - so quiet you can hear the motor noise on a Canon ;-)

Stay cool my man..
