    Where are you located?


    Where are you willing to to ship?


    This camera has much going for it and the 3.1 firmware boost has brought it up to snuff in many departments. It has the Sony 20Mpx sensor, in-cam battery charging, a straightforward interface unlike Lumix/Oly so patience and practice are needed.* The 4k video is here plus FHD, HD and a 4:3 "2k" mode that is nice when 16:9 is just too much extra space.

    The 12-40mm is retractable but not Lumix-12-32 retractable; it zooms the Oly/Canon direction. Focus speed is fine in good light, OK otherwise (speed is equivalent to my Lumix 14-42ii); an AF assist lamp is available plus MF+peaking mode (the lower button by the screen bumps up magnification in MF+Pk mode). Nothing in the kit is stabilized and I've yet to prove definitively that OIS lenses are functioning recent reports are that only lenses with a physical OIS switch will stabilize on the M1 body. Lens takes 49mm filters.
