Convenience and Quality
1

This is a handy camera for traveling and candid shots when the photographer would otherwise disturb the subject (eg.wildlife). It connects to your smartphone via wifi so it can act as a stand alone lens on a tripod, using your phone as a remote shutter, or clipped directly to the smartphone, turning it into a point and shoot camera. The photo quality is very good and the big plus is that it shoots RAW and JPEG format. On the downside, it is a pricey item if you don't already own E mount lenses. I purchased a sony lens for an additional $300, so ended up paying around $700 for the camera & lens. In hindsight I wish I had used that money to upgrade my Canon system.
