I’ve looked at this model, and the anniversary one preceding it (made of much cooler metal). However, I’ve decided not to get it, enjoying my Fujifilm X-Pro2 with its hybrid OVF/EVF. You can use view mode to turn off the LCD and use the optical viewfinder only — still vastly superior to Leica’s. You can turn off the preview in it as well. But you can reclaim it back if you want to. Shortly after I decided not to get the 262, Hasselblad announced its first compact medium-format, which, for the money, will also provide a lot of fun all of its own. I’m not convinced that the minimalism you’re getting in case of Leica 262 without LCD is the true beauty — I’d like to read your report six months later!
