It looks stunning, I am wondering of the 40 megapixel sensor and additional writing to the card will hit battery life. Still can't wait to get out with one though.

Seems as though the battery life is excellent - 740 shots vs 600 on the X-T4 which has the same battery… and my X-T4 feels like it shoots forever lol
