If the majority of your shooting involves sports or moving objects, you're probably going to want to avoid this camera...

The focus is finicky as many have already mentioned, but there are so many positives to this camera that make it hands down my favorite camera.

Pros:

-IQ is on par if not better than my old Nikon D7000
-Its much smaller than a DSLR - Meaning I'm taking it around with me almost everywhere I go. - The best camera is the one that's with you (Chase Jarvis).
-Construction is beautiful
-OLED view finder is amazing
-Dials and changing the ISO settings on the fly is actually easier on this camera than on my old D7000...

I'm a HUGE fan of putting the camera in M (manual) and tapping the AE-L/Af-L button to grab focus. That way I can hit that shutter as much as I want with out having to deal with the camera constantly autofocusing everytime I shoot.

Much easier than hitting the switch on the body or the lens of my Nikon.

To be honest, I'm going to try and sell my Nikon and pick up the 18-55 kit lens when it comes out.

This camera is a little beast, and I'm so happy.

Problems:

Slow and temperamental focus
