Great small camera

I have grown to like this camera having initially thought that I had made an expensive mistake in buying it. Image quality is superb. Great colour, detail and texture. The lens is sharp. Build quality is very good - the camera feels good to hold. You get a free copy of Adobe Lightroom included. An optical viewfinder is essential and is very good though this is another cost. Overall an expensive camera with few "bells and whistles" but it does the important job of taking pictures very well. DSLR image quality without the size and weight. Nobody notices you with this camera!

Problems:

Optical viewfinder is en expensive and necessary optional extra.
Battery life is not as good as with most DSLRs.
Data transfer is slow - this is not an action camera.
Operating software not as sophisticated as would be found on camersa from Japan etc.
