Ergonomics count, especially when you get used to Leica's excellent system--wow! The lens adapter works seamlessly with no performance penalty.

"Black looks black."

Simple to figure out how to use, even for beginning photographers. Mid-afternoon typically required swapping in a charged battery. I bought this camera right before I went on vacation to Hawaii. However, while it was still working, it took great pictures and was very easy to use. Every thing was fine except I would have liked a better memory card.

The initial charge using the Leica 19116 to charge the battery took about 2 hours. So I went to a camera store and tried out both of them. It took me a while to figure it out.
