Summary: After a month with the MZ 1 including a family trip and my two year old's birthday, I can tell where its pros and cons are. It was bought as a replacement for a G12 that I lost and as a primary camera for family stills and video, travel and street photography where I could go to my DSLR for anything...
Excerpt: I have had this camera for a few months now so I thought I would share my experience with you. So, what do I think? On the whole it has been a great buy. Mind you, I certainly did not pay the release price of £450.
Summary: Great macro function. Easy to use, with little advance reading of the manual. Love that the exposure dial is on top. Don't love the charger with the long cord- Pentax needs to come up with a battery charge that plugs directly into a wall socket. Memory card must be purchased separately
Summary: Well made, kinda heavy for its size but to me that's a plus. A tad too big to carry in your shirt pocket but as a small compact camera it takes awesome pics. Works well in low light. I'd recommend this camera for anyone looking for a top notch, well built compact camera.
