As far as I can tell, not a rangefinder... you have to count on auto-focus. Looks like manual mode is menu driven. f/4.0 28mm FOV? FOV is right on, but f/4.0 limits it to outdoor shooting.
Not to say that it's not a step in the right direction -- a growed-up sensor on a tiny body with a nice medium wide lens is a good step.
My fictitious digital camera will allow me to shoot it in a manual mode that feels like a film camera (aperture right and shutter speed dial), OR allow me to do automatic exposure. It will have autofocus available, but autofocus will only be a "bonus", secondary to a bright, sharp rangefinder with a nice baseline for those of us who are nearly blind. It might have an LCD, but I will be able to turn it off and shoot 100% without it.
AFAIK, there are still only two digital rangefinders in the world, both are too expensive, and neither are what I really want.
it reminds me of the ricoh gr digital that has a fixed 28mm (equiv) lens thats f/2.4 and its 8mp...if it didnt cost so much it would be pretty cool...you can also get an optional wide angle adapter that brings it down to 21mm and it actually comes with a seperate top mounted rangefinder!! www.dpreview.com/reviews/ricohgrd/ there is the dpreview.com review
