Review Excerpt

  • Quality build; Unique hybrid optical viewfinder; Excellent LCD; Good controls; Excellent image quality.

  • Limited to prime lenses (for now); Loose aperture ring and EV dial; Mediocre autofocus speeds; Slow buffer clearing; Tripod socket too close to battery compartment.

  • Produces superior image quality that's better than many DSLRs; Handsome and functional camera design recalls classic rangefinder models; Surprisingly good kit lens.

  • Mixed-bag operational performance, with sluggish startup and mediocre autofocus speed and shot-to-shot times; Video quality is only so-so.
