Criteria Comments Rating
  • Image quality Very good image quality for a smaller sensor. good
  • Video quality 720 is good but no optical zoom in movie mode. No real controls in video mode. so-so
  • Battery life Nice big battery, no compaints. good
  • Design and form factor Rear wheel can be a little touchy to deal with, you may find you accidently "click" when you are trying to spin the dial. good
  • Durability Very high build quality. good
  • Speed (start-up time, lag) Fast to start, fast to focus. Menus are very speedy, no lag. great!
  • Ease of use Great for someone who wants total control, semi auto or point and shoot. good
Detailed review
Very happy over all. Only two annoyances: sometimes refuses to focus in macro mode... don't know why... also dial on back needs to be a bit larger, less sensitive to touch.
