M5 — First impression


1. Size. I looked the photos and sizes charts, but I'm still in shock how small is this micro DSLR is! Even the box is tiny, compare to M3 and original M one.

2. Speed. I never saw my 22mm focusing so fast:) Sigma 30mm is another surprise — I got this lens when for original M came out and never used it on any DSLR camera. With M5 it works very fast and I'm so happy that I didn't sell it because of M3+adapted lenses fiasco. Tamron 150-600 — I need to test it more outside (it's rainy today), but even inside the house, it works very fast and accurate.

3. Handling/ergonomics is very nice. even with big and heavy Tamron.

Need to find more time to do some actual shooting, but feel like M5 will be soon my main camera.

Sorry if I sound like Santa on Prozac, but I'm pretty happy so far:)
