Panasonic G1

  1. So you agree that a pellicle mirror is a mirror, after all?

    Did you know that the main mirror of common (D)SLRs does not
    reflect all light, but lets some light pass through to the
    secondary mirror and the AF sensors?
    So what?
    Using an EVF is certainly not the view method used by the
    type of cameras called (D)SLRs, either.

    IL-EVF sounds OK if you pronounce the letters not the acronym.
    Or 'EVF System' assuming that implies lenses in a kit.

    When the viewfinder gets so small, there probably isn't much lost going
    to an EVF.

  5. Is it? Now what about those DSLRs that have a large AF area ...
    there the major part of the main mirror is pure beamsplitter.

  6. But if they used a beamsplitter of equal strength as main 'mirror'
    to archive identical brightness in the viewfinder, it would
    stop being a SLR design in your eyes?

    You see, you'll eventually have to either agree that a half
    silvered mirror is a mirror or you'll have to specify an absurd
    cut off point ("when more thann 59.734% of the mirror is a beam
    splitter") when the (D)SLR doesn't have a 'real' mirror --- and
    in either case, the G1 doesn't even have a beam splitter and thus
    is no SLR in any case. Sorry.
