Here is another review of the Yi M1. Essentially what it says is that it produces good enough JPEGs, very good RAW and video should be avoided.

I'm waiting for Amazon to process some returns and then I'm going to order the Yi M1. I'll write a sort of layman's review when I receive it.

I ordered the camera with the single zoom kit lens last night. Since I've been reading so many gripes about autofocus, I got a cheap fast manual prime by an unknown (to me) company named Jaray. From what I've read, manual focus lenses do OK on this thing. We'll see!

It arrived today. The product box was in rough shape and was missing the charging cable. Won't focus indoors. And thus ends my brief experiment with this camera.

It sounds like FW3 is out today? Might be worth one more test before bailing..

The website doesnt reveal anything much about FW3,this camera may turn out to be reasonable after they fix a lot of the bugs???

I definitely think that putting Panasonic or Olympus glass on will help.

On 4/3 rumours is a list of the new stuff from the firmware update.

It may have changed it from a mediocre camera to reasonable???
