"Great camera for wildlife."5.0 starson by shearwater12
Pros: Versatile viewfinder
Fast, accurate autofocus
Cons: Battery life
Time lapse when turned on
Summary: I think CNet's review has an error (or typo) when it states that autofocus doesn't work with aperture priority. I almost always use aperture priority and AF works just fine. Also I have never inadvertently activated the Preview function button and I have never heard anyone else find that to be a problem - there must be a substantially different way that the reviewer handles cameras from the rest of us.
Autofocus is fast and accurate. For critical manual focus, there is "focus peaking" in which the pixels at highest contrast are highlighted. Of course it is always possible to enlarge the viewfinder image for best focus as well.
The review skipped over the versatility of the viewfinder but, for example, you never have to look at the back LED screen for any camera function including all menu items - it can always be viewed in the finder. Another really useful aspect of the finder is that it shows what the sensor chip sees - if the scene is over or underexposed, that is visible in the finder. wysiwyg from the finder.
Thanks for your submission!
