This is probably the best travel camera ive used so far - its very discreet and lightweight aswell as compact. Its a lovley traditional design and keeps the LED Screen and buttons to the minimum. I've Found the matrix accurate for most situations with a 50mm lens but on bright days i would avoid using wide ange lenses because it overexposes dramatically. The Camera is well built for a modern SLR and i would highly recommend this from anyone who takes their photography seriously , i cant get enough of Zeiss Lenses. This little gem doesnt include any of the usless flash gadgets possibly making it the best Modern SLR in the price range. The Shutter speed is 1/4000 making for some great snaps whether it be landscapes or pets. I have had this camera for the past year or so and have never had any problems with it and it has never broken. All in all a very good value camera that i have nothing but praise for. Well worth the £180 i paid for it.
