Great workhorse for all kinds of semi-pro and pro productions. Great control available, excellent image quality, conversion lenses are well worth the expense to extend the range of the standard lens. If you want to go pro and you're on a budget... it's tough to beat.
This is an edit of earlier review (date 20/06/09). Still like the camera. However, for serious pro work... you now need to be looking towards proper HD. Technology moves on I'm afraid.
