Most helpful reviews

matt, Gloucestershire Professional photographer

Score 9.0/10
Good points:
If you want a uncompromising quality camera with weather sealing and great ISO and dynamic range and low noise characteristics. Great for landscape and studio work but with on 4fps not totally suited for action shouting.
Bad points:
Costs a lot of money but cheaper and better than the competition. Don't buy this if you think you are going to get good results with cheap lenses.

Simon, Professional photographer

Score 9.0/10
Good points:
Amazing image detail - you can crop away like mad and still output a phenomenal print. This is the first camera that I've owned that makes it possible to truly "recompose" in Photoshop... If required.

Low light handling is very good with noise handled well. I no longer have any concerns about using ISO6400, for example. Have grabbed some excellent no-flash evening candids with this ISO.
Bad points:
I didn't buy the camera for its movie making abilities, so I find the prominence of the movie controls a little annoying.

I miss the AF focus selector switch, which is now combined with the focus mode selector.

It is pricey, even though it's amazing.
