Excerpt: I like the image quality very much. Carl Zeiss lens is superb. Great and easy menu. Rotating display. I really hope they make something new like that. I don't miss interchangeable lenses. I bought to new cameras Canon EOS and Panasonic DSCG1, and still prefer this.
Summary: I had wanted this camera since I read about it a few years ago. Just seemed to fit my needs, with its high ISO and the LED screen that swivels around. I take pictures of a friend's rock band and need a camera that is fast. From what I read about this one is that it is.
Excerpt: I have had my R1 for 2 months now, bought it in Ebay. From start it was very easy to use, easy to learn all functions and it took very good photos from day one. It is a big camera compared to V1 that I have used for 5 years but I love the size. It is more easy to hold steady than a smaller camera.
Excerpt: This is truly an amazing camera. Beautifully made Carl Zeiss (24-120mm) zoom lens matched with an APS size sensor. The images it produced are top rated. I'm so happy with this camera. The top LCD is also a nice touch. I love using it as a waist level camera, also making tough to shoot angle easy.
