I think the ability to close the shutter when the camera is powered off should help with this, on all other mirrorless cameras the shutter stays always open for some unknown reason.Also if no sensor cleaning is included with gxr, it is a possible problem for lens changers. It is good to have more serious camera options
Or bad depending on how you look at it haha. I have to say after a good few months with my k5 and lenses, I've finally caved in to getting a Canonet film rangefinder and I'm loving the rangefinder experience. I've been travelling lately too and the k5 and lenses are a little on the heavy side and micro four thirds is certainly getting better, so I'm thinking of getting an m8 and possibly a return to m4/3 (tried touch shutter and loved it so much!).The 2nd half of 2011 sounds like a great year for people inflicted with GAS! We've got the new Pens, new Oly lenses, new PL25, the NEX7, the A77, and now the GXR Leica module. Pretty cool!!!
