Summary: I have this camera at work and have been shooting for 20 years. I hate it. The controls are clumsy and on a tripod you can't use your left hand to control the lens functions and zoom. The image may look good but the functionality is the worst I have ever seen. The monitor is bulky and obnoxiously large. I have been a Sony guy since the beginning but this will end my loyalty to Sony. What a let down.
