I don't seem to have the same complaints as those mentioned here so far. It's a fabulous little camera but there are three things that bother me a bit.

1) seems to a narrow dynamic range and blows out highlights rather easily. I know this can be somewhat probably adjusted with DRO. But it does it in DRO Auto.

2) since it tends to blow out highlights, I want to use the histogram a lot. But when you use the EV compensation, the histogram disappears. Adds steps.

3) close ups will only focus at the widest angle. I tried using the macro setting in the scene mode but this didn't seem to change anything that I could see, which makes me wonder whats the purpose even have a macro mode in the scene settings.

Anyone have any solutions to any of the above?
