Not better than a bad compact
2

Bought this camera for my work, after reading all professional excellent reviews. Very disappointed with the performance. It just can’t produce decent pictures. I get a lot better pictures with the Fuji S100FS that I own private. I take about 10 000 pictures a year so I consider me to be fairly experienced.

Problems:

Scharpness is very bad.
Autofocus speed in live view is horrible, live view can only be used for macro purpose when using manual focus.
Battery life is not very great.
Flash performance is catastrophic, it has to be set manually to get some light on the object.
