meh, it's ok for the right price only
5 months ago

I was extremely excited to purchase this camera for $240 shipped.  The many reviews I read didn't scare me, this is a $550 camera for $240 after all.  After using it for about a week my response to anyone is "meh, it's ok, nice lens, slow performance, and a bit chunky to slide into a pocket".  I was disappointed that ISO noise starts being noticeable around 400. Overall it is decent...for $240.  It's a downright bad camera for $550 (msrp)

What I like:

very fast lens, good looking camera, articulating screen, good quality under ideal conditions

What I don't like:

size (a bit big), annoying lens cap notifications, severe delay when shooting raw, iffy auto-focus, continuous shooting when using raw, some controls need digging through menus, small buttons for big hands.
