We've been round this loop quite a few times now.

- - They've yet to show a working model.
- - The estimated delivery time always seems to be six months away ( this 
  has been the case for well over a year).
- - The sensor is *much* smaller than the 35mm frame.
- - It's 100ASA only.
- - Since the cartridge to image centre distance for 35mm is not
  standardised, it won't fit all 35mm cameras (as they promised
- - The user interface'odd', since it can't have any controls.
