Score 6.0/10
Good points:
Quality of images and the ease of use are good.
Bad points:
Exposure Bracketing is very weak and needs some work. Generally it is very sluggish and compared to some Nikons and Canons i have owned it is slow.

Steve, Walthamstow Keen amateur

Score 10.0/10
Good points:
Very easy to use and produces good quality pictures. The best thing about being digital is you can experiment with shutter and aperture without any worries about developing costs. A sound camera for learning how to use a DSLR effectively. BBC Springwatch even chose an image I submitted as one of their favourites!
Bad points:
I took 700 pictures in the first week of owning it
