In my experience this is a product that will improve your photography over time. I think as you get used to the fixed focal length this makes you focus your mind on what you want to shoot and how you want to capture it or portray it. I'm beginning to see in 35mm, if that makes sense. That said, a couple of times I would have preferred a wider angle or telephoto lens and this quality of image. But to get that would mean carrying a 1kg camera and a 1kg lens. This weighs 440g, and fits in a baggy pocket or simply hangs on a wrist strap with the lens cap off, waiting to snap a candid street shot. This really is DSLR quality in a small and light package - well worth investing in if that is what you are looking for.
The camera is solid and very well-made, as you'd expect for the price. The aperture ring on the lens works nicely, its really intuitive, and I spend most of my time living in aperture priority mode. I really like the look of pictures taken at f2-4, the background blur adds character and gives the pictures an almost 3D pop. Close ups sing with detail. Sometimes though, the focus misses, which is a real pain when it happens at a decisive moment. Shooting in raw and post-processing in Apple Aperture opens up huge creative options, and lets you rescue photos you thought were flops: the sensor captures a breathtaking dynamic range, at least in comparison with my previous camera (the Sony Nex5, itself a fine machine).Read more ›
The build quality is excellent. It is quite hefty but built like a tank.
The AF speed is a little slow but it's ok. If you have ever used a Fuji X100 I would say it is similar in speed to that.
I really wish they had made it with a built in viewfinder. I bought the EVF separately as I consider it essential for me but the price of that and the other accessories is way over the top. This is why it gets a 4 star rating from me.
The price of the camera itself is expensive but when you consider what you would have to pay for a lens of this quality on a full frame body then it looks very reasonable.
£2500 rrp seems to be a steep price, but for what your getting I think it's ok - theres a full sensor in there and its portable with an amazing lens.
What I don't understand is how Amazon can be showing a price of over £3K - way higher than the rrp - that clearly is not value for money.
My review is to point out just how expensive Amazon are selling it for. Or not selling it as is probably the case at that price.
