Good points:
Great proper camera feel, really well put together, excellent quality particularly for the size of the camera. Encourages creativity, have shot some of my best photos yet. Good expandability and very versatile. Looks great too!
Bad points:
Nothing significant, would be hard to improve on this for what I'm looking for out of a camera.

Martin, Tunbridge Wells Experienced amateur

Score 9.0/10
Good points:
Good handling and functions, nice feel and looks. Compact for features. Flexibility of system. Battery life not bad.
Bad points:
Need to purchase electronic viewfinder for easier framing of shots in strong light. Understand this is excellent but pricey. Could have option to bundle this for a reduced combined price as P2?
