The Smoking Camera: Shooting in good light with the V3 is pure delight and IQ with more pixels than the V1 or V2 is surprisingly good. Low light shooting should only be out of necessity since there are many better options - unless you have the 32/1.2 which is superb. Upcoming 70-300CX will be a game changer IMHO.

I admire your passion, however, why limit yourself to a 1 inch sensor. I often throw a diminutive Ricoh GR in my bag to complement my V3. The right tool for the job. No?

Sunrise shot in Venice, Italy near St. Marks Square. During carnival, costume-dressed individuals come out pre-sunrise to get their photographs taken. It's a photographic feeding frenzy.
