Review Excerpt

  • Good (modern, not retro!) looks and solid build; f/1.4 Schneider-Kreuznach lens starting at a wide 24mm equivalent with excellent low-light capabilities; Advanced photographic controls and RAW capture; 3-inch, articulated AMOLED monitor.

  • Limited telephoto reach; Inconsistent and disappointing JPEG images; Some corner blurring at both wide and tele; Noise suppression too strong at ISO 800 and above, robbing detail.

  • Very good image quality for its class; Compact, sleek camera body; Excellent touchscreen and user interface; Fast built-in lens; 4K UHD recording and 4K Photo.

  • Continuous autofocus performance is spotty; Shallow RAW buffer depth; No built-in electronic viewfinder; No hot shoe; Slow start-up time.
