  • The grip is especially comfortable and the controls are very adequate
  • ruggedly-built; full-featured camera that
  • faster ISO speeds and those through ISO 800 appear very clean
  • It looks great and works similarly
  • feature is very nice and much easier than manually doing the same
  • image quality of this LCD is excellent and it easily wipes clean
  • quick and accurate in normal light levels and lighting conditions

Cons

  • Flat picture profile might not have 12 stops of dynamic range
  • absence is not a deal-breaker
  • not earth-shattering in 2019
  • this sentiment is entirely subjective and unscientific
  • eye-detection AF or the somewhat restricted articulated rear screen
  • lag when changing from EVF to screen and back again
  • lack of focal points
  • smothered in textured rubber around the front and backplate
  • Some will find this a tad annoying
  • Looks like Nikon might be king again
  • in-body image stabilisation
