The camera came with the newest firmware and was ready to shoot out of the box. Most people complain about the AF speeds, personally I find them to be okay. No..its not as fast as my MKIII, but its fast enough to catch most things. I really love the fact that I can select focus points by just tapping an area on the LCD screen. I wish my other cameras had this feature.
The interface takes a bit to figure out, but it is easy to use. I haven’t used the video feature enough to have an opinion on it, but I’ll get to that another day.
The picture quality in my opinion is top notch! Just as good as any Canon mid tier DSLR. ISO performance is great at 3200 and pretty usable at 6400. Exposure is consistent and works as it should. It was an easy transition coming from the 5D’s
If you can get this camera for less than $300, you should!! I can’t think of anything that at that price all the way up to $450 that is better. You need to understand the limitations (M Mount, AF limitations, etc) before buying. If you can live with the limitations, this camera will surprise you.
