This long-zoom bridge camera features the new 16-million-pixel EXR CMOS sensor and offers a real alternative to a compact system model. We put it to the test
Focusing is relatively quick at wider focal lengths, but it struggles with lower-contrast scenes at longer distances. Although there is an AF assist lamp for low-light use, it is a white, fairly low-powered beam and is partly obscured by the lens and lens hood. The range of focus options is varied, from multi-point, face detection and tracking, to full selective control over the entire screen.
