A deep look into things nobody in their right mind would care to look at.
Over the course of my camera ownershipness I’ve owned exactly two mirror-less digital cameras an both have had one horrible feature that has somehow spread like a plague among mirrorless camera designers, the retractable kit lens. Most people generally like the idea of swapping out the kit lens the moment they get a camera but considering the cost of lenses and the normally quite useful focal lengths of the kit lens, it’s nice to have some functionality from the first lens that comes with your camera. So what’s the deal with making my lens useless until I take the time to pop it out? Does it look too fugly on store shelves if you have that knob of a lens sticking out of your cameras? Seriously, if people cared how stupid a camera looked fujifilm would be out of business.
And what’s the deal with taking a compact mirrorless camera and jamming a doorknob on it anyway? Unless you’re buying a mirrorless camera to replace a full dslr, which in most cases is kind of dumb since you have to re-buy basic accessories like a viewfinder, a mirrorless camera should be compact if not pocketable! The whole point of having a compact mirrorless camera is that it’s compact! Come on olympus, sony and all the other “me too” chumps making mirrorless cameras these days! give us a 35mm (or equivalent) prime and stop making crappy pop out lenses!
