Great news. Make sure you keep us updated! One thing I really want to know, is if the EVF can be switched to black and white? And the other thing being if there will be a larger rubber eyecup for the EVF... like with the Sony's. If those things are available, I will likely order one right away.

From what I've heard, this is just a XL-H1 without interchangeable lenses, a normal body (no shoulder-mount)... but the imaging technology is the same. And of course the professional jack-pack (which the G1 does have).

So please updated is with everything you know/find-out!

Unfortunately no -- only the flip-out LCD can be set to B&W. See http://www.dvinfo.net/conf/showpost....2&postcount=67

If it's not a high resolution monitor, switching from color to B&W wouldn't make it any better, would it?

Since this WA has 72mm threads as does the XL H1, how well do you think it'll work with the H1?

Good to have some pics of the machine with a person for scale reasons.

My only point would be to perhaps re-shoot but not at a wideangle setting as taking pics with wideangles at fairly close range is notorious for distorting size of objects (near vs far) and relative size is exactly what we're trying to judge here......

This tends to be one reason why stills guys shoot head-n-shoulders shots with (classically) an 85mm-105mm focal length range (35mm..).

Not possible for me to re-shoot, but no doubt there will be others who can provide similar photos in the coming weeks. I took these snapshots with a PowerShot Elph SD700 at full wide, which on that cam is about 35mm.

Being a busy Friday, our lens guy just started to get to play with the A1.....and then he went home for the day. Saturday, Greg Salmon was here for the seminar and we did have it on the 26" Panasonic and it looked real good but it was not a production model. It was the same unit I had 4 weeks ago so to be fair, when we get a production model, I think we'll know exactly what the numbers are and how close/same/better it is to the H1.
