In reasonable light the AF rivals the capabilities of a "pro" DSLR for tracking moving objects, all in a lightweight, compact package.

Not only does it have wicked fast AF, it can shoot 30 still images in half a second...

True, but only in JPEG mode, which is a huge downer.

Any opinions I express are my own and do not represent DPReview.

No, actually it is RAW. Or RAW + Jpeg if you prefer. The odd thing is that if you do opt for Jpeg only, you still can't get any more than 30 shots in that half second burst at 60fps, so it is not simply a buffer limit.

If you want something to whinge about, try the fact that if you opt for the 60fps option, the autofocus is fixed at the first frame. If you want each RAW image individually focused using AF-C, you have to slow way down to 10fps. But the V2 can manage it at 15fps.
