Stunning Image Quality
Stunning Image Quality, compact and easy to take along
The Bottom Line:
You get what you pay for. The image quality is stunning. The RAW photos must be seen.
I purchased the camera as soon as it was released to the
public (late 2005) based on the companies reputation as a
top end producer of cameras. To date my photo counter
says I have taken over 500 photos with it and I continue to be blown away by the image quality.
The camera produces extremely clear, detailed and color
accurate photos. I am unable to say enough about the
image quality it is phenomenal!
The camera is a breeze to operate and easy to carry around. The menus are well structured and offer extensive control.
The workmanship is top quality.
