For those of you who do not know what a rangefinder camera is, it's a very accurate focusing aid. It has a port window like most point and shoot camera, but in there is has a mirror that splits the image so you are looking into one window, but looking out through two windows with their images over lapping. Adjusting the focus on the lense also adjusts the mirror, so when what you what in focus is lined up with it'sself in the overlaping image, you know that it will be in focus. The advantages are you get a very accurate focus, very fast shutter response, and the view port is never blacked out like on an SLR.
I'm curious what these Lecia/Epson hybrids will cost.
