Review Excerpt

  • Handles even better than its predecessors; Absolutely spectacular images from the 36-megapixel image sensor; Unusually wide sensitivity range for its resolution; Improved performance and buffer depths; Improved video feature set; Impressive low-light autofocus

  • Prone to moire and false color with some subjects; No longer available with a low-pass filter; Demands excellent lenses for the best detail; White balance tends warm under tungsten lighting

  • Fantastic image quality across the board; Excellent RAW dynamic range; Superb high ISO performance; Functional and user-friendly body; Robust weather-sealed construction; Detachable EVF; Tilting touchscreen; Very good lens quality.

  • Slow AF speeds; Performance can't compete with high-end full-frame cameras; Limited native lens selection so far; Expensive accessories; Unimpressive JPEG dynamic range; 1/125s maximum flash sync.
