Derrick, Lincoln Experienced amateur

Score 9.0/10
Good points:
Image quality is great. On line support tutorials very useful. Very good range of features, but these would be confusing without the support tutorials.
Bad points:
It doesn't have external pc control built in. On a camera of this class this should be very easy to implement and would make a huge leap in the value for money.

Gordon, London Keen amateur

Score 8.0/10
Good points:
Fantastic features for the price including tilting view screen and high frame rate. Small for a DSLR. High frame rate.
Can use my old Minolta lenses and off camera flash etc.
Bad points:
Quite a lot to learn. All DSLRs with an extra lens are bulky.

Alan, Bristol Keen amateur

Score 9.0/10
Good points:
My Minolta 35-105 & 100-300 autofocus lenses from my Dynax 5000 work fine and produce good pictures allowing for a 1.5 multiplier. The auto and program functions are good for point & shoot, continuous shooting is great for action shots. The 'level' view finder display means I have no excuse for sloping horizons any more.
Bad points:
Battery life not as good as expected.
