Well one the EVF on this thing is amazing you will not miss an optical viewfinder with this EVF it is fantastic and no tearing or issues paying. Next the AF is fast and accurate and it is customizable so you can tailor it to your shooting situation.


I had so much to do today I couldn't get out and really shoot but the 15 minutes using it walking around I found my camera I will build around it is that good it is fast and solid and fun to use. Now using a rangefinder style is not for everyone but it fits what I like and the rear LCD is beautiful overall it it feels like my perfect camera for me. This will not be for everyone but I love it. The 18-55 is no ordinary lens it is not what you think of when you say kit lens it is super fast, very quiet and the OIS works well and it is sharp and well built mostly metal and all the functions and rings are butter smooth.


Ok these are SOOC no PP and I had the sharpness at +1 and I used the Provia color profile.  I am one happy man now to work another year of overtime and by 3  f2 (23, 35, 50) primes and the 55-200 or maybe the cheaper 50-230 that one will take a bit more thinking.


The last one is Winter using the small popup flash using a bit of a bounce mode.

Fuji Planet lives!  Great shots.  When I joined the Planet, I was shooting a Fuji.  Fuji always has beautiful color. Winter shot is my favorite.

Looks like a good camera. Nikon has its work cut out for them.

Thanks, Dennis.

Congrats on a good purchase, Jim.


The shot of Winter is my fave, even if she looks like she would rather have you throwing her ball for her, than posing for a pic.  :D
