Brighter viewfinder, lens cap is build into the lens (no more costly replacements)Very informative viewfinder, build in data back, new retro design (based on cult camera Contax T) which turned out to be a disaster, aperture controls were moved (electronic control vs manual ring turn control as on previous models), automatic zoom as opposed to manual one.
