    It is an absolute pig if you want to shoot RAW. It has virtually no
    interface for it compared to other cameras such as the Olympus and Sony
    (TIFF).

    Adobe is promising to come out with an update to camera raw plug-in for it.

    It is best shot at mid-focal lengths (stay away from the extremes) and about
    f5.0-f8

    Expect to pay another $600 for bits that are not in the box when you buy it
    .... like a charger, a filter holder, filters and a decent memory card (1Gb).

    It is good outdoors and mildly annoying on the colour balance when under
    artificial light. The manual colour balance isnt that good, the auto is a
    bit ordinary.

    In the top JPEG mode (Large Superfine) it can shoot 100's and 100's of shots
    into a 1000Mb card on one battery - so long as you shoot with the LCD off
    .... the optical rangefinder type wiindow isnt too bad. Just the my eyes are
    on the side of my face not in the middle of it. (see camera)

    Would suggest you look at dpreview for a comparable unit ..... the Sony is
    OK .... the 717 and V1 is worth a look ..... just dont think the V1 does
    filters.
