Upgrade to the R7 increases the resolution to 10 megapixels and adds a lovely high resolution screen but retains the compact styling and versatile 28-200 equiv. 7x zoom. With a wealth of useful and often novel features (not least the big lens in a small body) the R8 is an attractive proposition, but it's let down slightly by its over-processed high ISO images, poor low light performance and lack of responsiveness. Not a bad camera, but not a great one either.
