Well balanced in my hands. Reasonable bulk for its purpose. Relatively lightweight. Terrific lens. Resolution and color utterly satisfying. Autofocus a dissapointment despite firmware version 2.0, improved only M/F. For fast shootting, especially in low light situations, stick to manual focusing. Aperture and speed dials tend to turn quite easily. One must check. I only wish this camera had a faster AF and a 35-70 equivalent zoom. In all a star performer. S/N 3813xxx.
Leatherette covering loosened. Was sent to factory and repaired at no cost.
