Good Points
colour balance superb, focus excellent, sharp lens with good range, first of 7 cameras I have owned that provides a lens hood !

Bad Points
Multi segment metering gets it wrong occasionally. It should always meter with a bias to brightest part of picture. Falls down mainly on into the light pictures and occasionally on close ups with larger dark areas. EFV viewfinder lens a bit naff, does not do screen behind justice.

General Comments
Would love a bigger rubberised hand grip (like new Nikon 995), occassionally it almost slips out of the hand. Would love a fold up rear LCD so camera can be at waist level on tripod, and you can look down at finder without having to grovel on hands and knees (like Canon Pro 70). I have already produced some superb A3 prints from this beast, and they are some of the best I have seen. The camera is a little agricultural being festooned with knobs, but it does work very well. A nice charcoal grey case wouldnt go amiss, it might give it a little more of a classy look than the gaudy silver case.
