Joyful little camera to use
4

Pros:

- good grip, reasonable button placement, lightweight, swivel screen
- Image quality on par with canon 800d, nice colour reproduction
- Good image stabilisation
- Autofocus is quick and works in low light, approximate the speed of efs-35mm macro
- On-camera flash is handy
- Panorama mode needs some practice but produces good results- Good EVF
- Charging via USB

Cons:

- Poor battery life, lasts about 200 shots per charge with flash off- Slow aperature somewhat limiting
- Long shortest focus distance, slow focus and tracking on macro (compared to efs-35mm macro)
- EVF eye sensor too sensitive
- Start-up time a bit slow
- In-camera raw editing functions too basic
- As a premium camera many functions are missing like scene/white priority WB, spot metering
- No mic input
- 37mm filter thread difficult to look for matching CPL filter, lens cannot retract normally with adapter ring on

I supplement this camera with Fuji or M43 set-up on wide-angle, tele or low light usage.
