  • If you have the bucks and you want the best photo quality possible…
    Cnet.com May 2011
  • Then that sort of complaints can be offset by the amazing light capture that the larger sensor/ fast lens combo give you in very low light conditions…
  • The quality of the images is fantastic, especially when used as a street camera…
  • To be fair it's only really suited to street photography with very limited use…
  • Unfortunately the image quality is a real let down…
