  • Cameras like this which have a high price tag and limited functionality will naturally only appeal to a few photographers… February 2016
  • Needed something lighter for dairy street photography…
  • Requires great technique to master the huge sensor.
  • The resolution is unmatched and if you are very careful you can produce spectacular images…
  • You also have to have good technique because all of your flaws will be magnified by the massive sensor…
  • If you can master your approach you will be rewarded with amazing images…
  • The quality of the images are GREAT…
  • The images from this camera, especially in macro settings, are deeply satisfying and meet the high expectations of this fine art photographer…
  • Not that this little camera wouldn't be up for the task! It's impressed me in picture quality, silent leaf shutter action, quick maneuvering around the customized buttons…
  • The lens is perfectly matched with the sensor, which results in breathtakingly sharp images that can be cropped down to more than 100% to reveal fine detail in the image that was not apparent when the image was taken…
