I own one of these cameras.  Compared with today's DSLR Bayer cameras this thing sucks in almost every way imaginable . . except one . . it takes much better pictures!  Trouble is, to use this camera you have to know photography, know what you are doing, and NOT be in a hurry.  For many folks today, those are not acceptable requirements.  So this camera is not for the average "I wanna upgrade from point and shoot but still let the camera do most of my thinking" DSLR buyer.  With this camera, you had better be thoughtful and knowledgeable.  Or else you're gonna be really unhappy and dissatisfied.

As for me, personally, I love this camera.  That's because I want the best quality digital photographs I can achieve.  And I'm willing to put in the effort to obtain them!
