I agree with those who came before me (above) This camera is the best I've ever owned....and I've owned more than most. On top of their comments: 1.

This camera has excellent features, unique ones, and actually it covers semipro level.

Shooting in ISO 1600 is like ISO 400 of other DSLRs of same class, while its low-noise multiple shooting ability gives excellent results even at 12600-iso. Metering, focusing and white balance are nothing but the best. In one phrase, this is a dream camera, at a very attractive price.
