The longer you have it, the more small issues you find. Normally I couldn't care less. Needed to get it in time to experiment & get used to it. Really great, even in low light with f/4 lenses. I've added some sample photos taken with this camera and a 50mm f1.

"Very happy."

Wonderful color, clarity and detail. There's just so much more to say about the Canon . With that said, this Professional Mirrorless Camera rocks. Really great, even in low light with f/4 lenses. Simply because they just use the kit lenses the cameras come with.

"Double & triple boxed."

Great battery life, about 300 shots in cold weather. The focus speed in general is so much faster and more reliable. Overall, its a great deal, with the body and lenses alone. It is light and easy to carry with you. The range of settings is impressive.

"My conclusion."

The flash can be overpowered rather than the subtle fill. Even with the lens, battery and SD card, it weighs very little. The second problem is the focusing controls. I wouldn't trade this camera for anything! Switching back and forth between photo and video is cumbersome.

"Traveler's dream!"

That's why I replaced the stock lens caps with Sony equivalents. Low light is extraordinarily good. Fast or continuous autofocus. Low light seems to be better than the GH4 or G7. Best Professional Mirrorless Camera on the market right now.

The flash feels lighter than my Andoer flash for my other camera. More megapixels would be nice too when cropping BIFs. The case is great to store the accessories in too. That being said I just love to travel and taking pics as a hobby. A shame since the video quality is very good.
