  • The difference between this and the previous case is that in the first case, you are increasing the depth of field by producing a merged file from several frames; in the latter case, you are selecting one file having the best focus on one scene element Ultimately…
  • The focus is fast in all light conditions…
  • Focus is lightning fast, even in difficult lighting…
  • The image stabilisation for photos works wonders, coupled with an IS lens it works for video very well as well…
  • The dual stabilization is amazing as well…
  • Easy to use, fast and quick focus, excellent picture…
