It's pretty good- easy to hold and relatively small. The IQ is above average, but not exceptional. It's a bit too long (on digital) for my taste, though. 300mm is more than adequate for most purposes.

Ohh Adam, veri tkx, for your Reply
I have already read this review, but the voices are few, and only one speaks of the suffering of CA
I was offered a copy, and I wanted to assess whether it was appropriate to take it or not.
