Review Excerpt

  • Really solid body littered with external controls feels like a camera should; Very bright zoom lens; Clever EXR modes; Raw support.

  • White orb problem; EV dial difficult to turn; Below average battery life; Shallow buffers; Occasional demosaicing errors.

  • Vastly improved burst speeds with deep buffer; Great performance with very fast autofocus; Very high resolution gives lots of detail in good light; High ISO noise levels much better than most pocket camera rivals; High-quality 4K video with uncompressed HDMI out; Super-fast High Frame Rate video; Same great pocket-friendly design.

  • Pricey for a compact camera; JPEGs can look over-processed at higher ISOs; Lens doesn't offer as much telephoto reach; Battery life not as good as predecessor; 24-70mm-equivalent lens can feel limiting.
