What I like by the photos -

The eyepiece is layer out much better than Sony or Fuji (for Fuji I have to 
buy the larger rubber cup).

The buttons are minimum. Sony and Fuji have way too many IMO. Keep it simple 
for users shooting a ton.

I don't mind the size, I have to use the battery grip on the Fuji to have to 
fit in my hand. 

The battery concerns me. Why can't these companies make a battery that last 
longer than 400 frames? I know EVH wears on battery life but come on, my 
IPhone 6plus will go at least 6 hrs of heavy use.
