"Excellent camera. Terribly off-the-mark review"5.0 starson by ChrisRossLeong
Pros: This camera is mainly for pros or advanced photographers who have actually studied photography. If you can pick up a manual (nothing automatic) film camera with no exposure meter and get a decent shot from a roll of film, then you're good to go!
Cons: If you've never read about sunny 11's or had a glance at the instruction leaflet a pack of film, or if you're scared or "not mechanical" or "not technical", "just creative" around cameras, then stay away from cameras like this.
Summary: Again the reviewer focuses on the marketing of equipment as a consumer item. This is a specialized camera for a very few people, much like a race car is only for a few drivers. Anyone, reviewer included, who just expects to climb into one and expect to win a race, well, they can expect what they want to. Sigma and Foveon are not for everybody. But for the people who are specialists, and who are looking for an instrument, however slow and blunt, to be able to deliver the goods, this instrument delivers, end of story.
Now it's up to you to figure out which kind of user you are. Nobody ever sold anyone a Leica M saying it's a point and shoot camera for anybody with the money to buy pro quality photos. 'Cos pro quality shots are taken by the pros, not the cameras, as many manufacturers (and, sadly, reviewers) would have you believe.
