"Ridiculous!"

The camera is fast, sharp, and most important to me - light. Let me talk about them briefly. The Sony is a great light weight mirrorless camera. The second problem is the focusing controls. So I bought this for my California vacation.

"A great street camera."

But, this fps was rather limited. Low light is extraordinarily good. The availability of the control dials makes a huge difference. In spite of all the motion on my end, the pictures were sharp. It's not great but it will get you started for sure.
