- Good points:
- Fantastic lens, very fast focussing with great build quality and a straightforward, uncluttered interface.
- Bad points:
- I am not totally convinced by the ergonomics – greatly improved by a good hand grip though. Main gripe is the EVF, as it's not ideal for spectacle wearers, making corners/edges difficult to see, and the rubber protection on the EVF surround is too small. There is also a tendency for the switch between EVF and LCD to be too easily triggered when reviewing photos, even when set to low sensitivity.
