Review Excerpt

  • Sleek, more professional camera design; faster autofocus system and burst modes; solid performance at high ISOs despite the bump up in megapixels.

  • Significantly more expensive than previous model; slow buffer clearing with RAW images; with kit lens attached, camera becomes less portable.
