It is hard to give just one rating to the camera, as some things on it deserve 10 out of 10 points and some just one.

Anyhow, it is a very decent camera for stills, video is a little bit soft and exhibits strong moireƩ and aliasing artifacts, so forget anything like rooftiles, grills or similar to look good. The missing microfocus adjustement can be annoying - if you need it.

I use the ML firmware and simply love it, the camera is clearly dumbed down for the "simple" majority of people who are afraid of anything technical. Lucky for geeks and nerds there is the ML to play with.

If I break down my overall 7/10 points, it would be something like this:

Operation comfort: 7/10
Stills image quality: 9/10 points
Stills high ISO: 7/10
Stills features: 5/10
Stills features with ML firmware: 9/10
Video quality: 2/10 points
Video features: 5/10 (lenses, DOF control)
Video features with ML firmware: 9/10 (everything else)
