A camera for all my reasons, and seasons!

I have never been so enthusiastic about a camera in a long time. With the exception of my mental Olympus E-10, this camera blows me away with all the metrics that matter to me.

Nice low light performance shooting nature in the shadows especially, and the colors so rich, and engaging. Good detail. Must get better glass to exploit it more though.

Build is chunky without weighing like a bowling ball around my neck. Nice control layout. Love the LCD screen too!

All Aces here on the things that matter to me. Oh yeah, lets not for forget weather sealing too.  Also as a bargain camera now, it doesn't make sense for me to buy a newer camera with less quality build. Your mileage may vary.

Everything I have used this camera for has impressed me, and not made me want for another camera. I call that success. Now just need a great f1.8 or f1.4 prime, and enjoy it more.

A solid 4 stars for technical performance, but for value, wish I could give 6!

A story from you minds eye.

It really is a great value right now - I've been having a hard time justifying stepping up to the k3!  Nice review.
