    Fabulous camera. It still needs a few more tweaks to the ergonomics, improved battery performance, a better EVF, more intuitive menu system and a significantly expanded lens system. Right now, I’m extremely happy with my DSLRs, but one more iteration from Sony MIGHT just persuade me to switch to mirrorless!
