Excellent zoom, Very comfortable to handle, The Leica lens name to an older generation!

Score 9.0/10
Good points:
A well-built camera, ergonomic controls and a high-quality lens
Bad points:
The lens has been optimised for most applications but, unfortunately, this has meant that the apeture has been restricted.

Score 9.0/10
Good points:
Handles well and feels solid. Contols logical and fall nicely to hand. Manual zoom and focus great. Adjustable screen more useful than I thought, especially as a periscope in crowds.
Bad points:
No really bad points - except that the weight of the lens makes it hang 'nose down' making the neckstrap fittings at the wrong angle.
