    Nice fast lens.

    The thing about this is the price — considering competitors in the newly opened higher-end bridge market are at $900-1100 range.

    The sensor is small,
    The lens is not bright.

    Is 200k dots acceptable for a viewfinder?? I’ve heard of million dot viewfinders and better. I feel like this isn’t a good showing right here.

    With 1,248mm lens, I can soccer moms around the world flocking to this one. Beginning bird watchers will probably find this camera an interesting alternative to the high-cost DSLR alternatives.
