Excerpt: I have waited almost a year before writing this review, during which time I have taken over 11,000 pictures with it. The camera is a little daunting at first as it has so many feature to learn. The first and most impressive is the auto focus system. It took me some time and the assistance of a training video to master the system but I have to say that it is so worthwhile. The focus system is awesome.
Conclusion: I use 2 of these camera's for my weddings, and have been for the past year, i can honestly say this is the best purchase i made last year. Amazing camera, with a very very improved AF, perfect for my style of photography.
Conclusion: Autofocus in video mode is missing (even my 4y old mobile have it). So if you'll decide to shoot video for your video blog. There is only one possibility to increase (highly) your aperture to stay in focus. Or ask someone to stay behind your camera and follow your subject to keep in focus. This is small bolt-on, but its missing and this is very annoying:( at least for me..
Pros: good battery life, quiet, Nice features/settings, excellent image quality, Superior build quality, Simple controls/menu, easy to use
Excerpt: For photo taking this camera is truly amazing. This camera has alot of fun features and full frame camera with Digic 5 image processor. 2 card slots which is a great feature. I like the headphone jack with a big screen for image viewing. The video recording is very good and especially in low lighting situation. http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=tzFH93siEKE I took this fun video of me dancing with low lighting in my basement. It's pretty descent.
Excerpt: Nice, solid body, great af, impressive image quality all the way to iso 12800. A bit on the heavy side for my liking. Best digital camera that I have owned, no question. I would also welcome a pop up flash optical trigger controller, but there are good cheap ettl options, so not a huge issue.
