Re: My first impressions - and some info...

From the manual:

"Occasionally, when using alkaline batteries, the battery-condition indicator will give a false low-battery-power warning, even though there is enough power capacity. Continue to use the camera; the low battery indicator will disappear. YEAH, WHEN THE BATTERIES ARE REALLY DEAD! LOL

"The rim of the lens hood can cause injury. Take care not to accidentally strike anyone with the camera when the lens hood is attached."

I guess you should remove the lens hood before accidentally striking someone (wonder if that will hold up in court?).

One last thing before I turn in. When you shoot in RAW the playback on the monitor and in the EVF is pretty ugly. The camera doesn't put the file through a processing algorithm as it will in the included program. The colors are yellow/green - yuck! Was worried until I RTFM! Night.
