Speaking of tripods...
In reply to nzmacro, May 3, 2012

Tripods work great. But if you have to lug around a 5 pound tripod to get "image stabilization," then it pretty much defeats the purpose of buying a 12 ounce camera.

And lets face it, the main appeal of ALL of these MILC cameras is "smaller size and weight."

No one buys a MILC camera because it has the absolute best image quality, or because it has the best ergonomics or controls when using large lenses. If they want that, then they buy a mid level DSLR or better.

People buy MILC camera because the image quality is "good enough" (in fact, very good) and because they are small, light, and easily portable. Carrying around a tripod because Sony, Fuji and Samsung somehow forgot to include stabilization in their bodies or lenses just doesn't make sense for this sort of product.
