Lots of very good feature and very easy to use. Problems: 1. Poor image quality, even at maximum JPEG resolution, high fuzzyness or lack of contrast/sharpness. 2. Hotspots are a real problem and very annoying as there is no way to get rid of them. 3. Any hotmirror filter produces green/blue vignetting from 28 to 100 mm. 4. Manual focus gear not very good in responding. 5. Camera hangs if the on/off switch is operated very fast.

Image quality has more noise the stronger the ...

You start to look at scenes with a completely different eye in IR. This is the first EVF camera I've ever used and it makes IR photography easy. The camera meters well and focuses well enough when it is only seeing IR light. ...
