    "This is certainly a step forward in camera technology when you consider performance, price, and features. Being mirror-less in design, this accounts for a major reduction in production cost, focusing more on additional features while still providing very good performance quality. While this is not a professional grade camera, it certainly is a great bargain for the everyday consumer who just needs a decent camera for general photography."
