  • Zoom ring locks up occasionally, Camera overheats while full HD video shooting and shuts down
  • No program shift, Electronic viewfinder only
  • Widescreen ratio LCD, EVF not for everyone
  • Metering gives very light images, Loss of quality at high ISO values, Resistance to concept of EVF
  • Large camera body for an entrylevel DSLR camera, In extreme lowlight conditions, camera sometimes cannot generate enough light to focus, Occasional glare makes LCD tough to see in direct sunlight, Might not have enough features for experienced photographe
  • Limited video-recording option
  • Tends to overexpose; some highlight clipping and purple fringing, Widescreen LCD not suited for 3:2 still shooting (you'll see black bars on other side of the scene when you're composing a shot), Electronic viewfinder has a strong "rainbow effect"
  • More exposure variability than we like to see, Overexposure bias in metering system under bright/high-key conditions, Maddening black-screen delay (15 seconds) after filling buffer, before you can review any photos, total buffer clearing time is very s
  • No optical viewfinder. Single-focus autofocus not available while recording video. No control over aperture and shutter speed while recording video. Audible lens noise in video capture
  • Limited control in 10fps and movie modes, AF system not quite up to capturing fast action, No live view in 10fps/6fps shooting makes panning almost impossible, Slow (50 seconds) buffer clear time (RAW-mode), Little control over high ISO noise reduction (&
