    The 1500 nit tilting screen is really quite a big deal. With the NDs and the new evf, this looks like a big step-up (operationally) for this kind of DSLR-like form factor.

    Yeah, I do wonder if the price drops on the Forza are down to them being about to release the 800 (which hopefully addresses the couple of small existing build-quality shortcomings).

    It does look great. You can get two Forza 500s for just a little more than a single 600D at the moment though. I think I'd probably be willing to tolerate the Forza's comparative compromises at that...

    If nothing else, simply having multiple 1/4"-20 mounting points on the top and bottom of the camera is a BIG deal. It really is.

    If this FX3 is what I think it is - a pared down FX6 in a tiny form factor (to go on Sony's new drone/use on gimbals) then I'll almost certainly pick one up (to live on my RS2).

    I found the C200 evf just as s*%tty and pointless as every other “built-in” evf I’ve encountered (F3, C300ii, FS5, C500ii). Even for vague framing I find them all too frustrating to use.

    That'd be my guess too:

    70-200mm T/3.1

    If they work as well as it sounds like the 16-35mm does (strong manual mechanics in addition to auto focus), then it'd be an...

    The 28-135mm is just an awful lens to operate. The mechanics are hot trash. I’d suggest saving your money and putting it towards something else.
