Review Excerpt

  • Excellent image quality from both JPEGs and RAW files; Superb high ISO performance; Very fast hybrid AF; Robust weather sealing; Dual UHS-II card slots; 4K video.

  • Precise manual focus is tricky with fly-by-wire focusing; Battery life is only decent; Video quality still not on par with competing cameras.
