Small, great build quality.

No sports camera but just a good all rounder for walkabout, stills, street, even travel.

They knocked the ball out of the park with this one.

The Zeiss 24-70mm eqvt F1.8-F2.8 is sharp and clear.

Good ISO 6400.

Fast AF decent for still to slow moving people.

The pop up EVF is a great innovation and works a treat giving a crisp sharp bright view.

The camera is packed full of features.

The RAW files are good for a sensor of this size.

The clear zoom function is only available in JPEG fine but gives really good results.

Tilting LCD

Complete silent mode and leaf shutter.

Very good IS

I actually sold it as for my main type of photography - Street - I found the IQ just not up to par with my aps-c and prime lens. But that;s not to be expected. Af for fast movign subjects not quite there.

I sold mine.

But do you know what? I miss it and when I see a good deal I will buy another.

Why?

Simply nothing beats having a camera this feature packed with good IQ and great solid feel, easy to customise and set up for fast use that fits in a suit pocket.

So although I'd never use it for my main purposes, I simply miss having this in my jacket pocket for snaps.

It really is that good.

4.5 stars for features, losing half a star for 'small sensor' photo look and not quite as good AF as I need for main use.

I never review cameras, even ones I own better than this for most uses.  So that should say something about how this little marvel grows on you

In good hands it;s capable of very good photographs in a lot of conditions and that little pop up EVF, I'll say it again, is genius.
