I am very satisfied with the camera and 3 lenses - P 35/2,4; Sigma 17-80/2,8-4,5; P 50/1,7. Very responsible camera with exact AF I have had. IQ really natural. A little bit quiet than k-x. Maximum rating because of value for the money. Problems: Speed decreasing by in camera lens correction - not important. Cause lens correction is more sofisticated in the Adobe products.
