Excerpt: A quick note on a few highlights of my experiences with this camera; a mix of good and bad. The menu navigation of the main menu is peerless and a model for others to follow. The flashy transitions between shooting modes are a terrible idea badly executed. The responsiveness during RAW shooting is nigh impossible to work around if you are accustomed to shooting a series of shots with different settings in quick succession. Otherwise, not an issue.
Excerpt: I was excited to get this camera since the preview-reviews I had seen were positive. Low noise at high ISOs was mentioned as a plus. My experience did not match these expectations. There was a lot of noise in shots. Even at 100 or 200 ISO some shots out of bright sunlight showed color noise. I found that the colors were flat and undersaturated (and this I admit is a matter of taste). Auto Focus seemed a bit slow and had problems in shade even during daytime.
