  • Takes lovely photos zoom is excellent and focuses quickly…
    Alio (Amazon) - February 2016
  • To get full use of the zoom it needs to be used with a tripod…
  • It looks great in preview (with shutter button half pressed), clear as crystal, then you press fully to take the photo and instantly the focus IS GONE ! ( it shows on the control screen how it goes hazy…
    Alondoner (Amazon) - November 2015
  • It's appearance is dominated by a very impressive lens…
  • However the big thing for me was to be able to get some good action shots of my lad playing football where a full optical zoom is needed…
