I have 2 of them. Fantastic cameras. A bit heavy but built like a tank. Had a strap let go bouncing one of mine off the ice on a paved road. No damage at all to the camera. I was shocked. I love the meter. It is hard to fool. Backlit flowers are a snap. My wife shoots them and they come out perfect. She has had no training and didn't even know what backlighting meant when she met me and gave it a whirl. Unbelievable shots. The controls are laid out much better than the F4 that I had. Easy to manual focus as well. I would give it the highest rating. Don
