I'm nothing like the writer, so I was left thinking I definitely don't want this camera. His writing is interesting, and there were really lovely photos, some really impressive - lots of beautiful scenes captured well. Part of this is achieved by taking a camera to an exotic locale and finding interesting scenes, which says less about the camera, though the Myanmar Farmer daylight shot was showed off what the camera could do well. It looks like a nice camera for a street photographer with the money.
The author's amazement at the discovery that cropping could be useful was pretty ridiculous. Dwelling on the
font typeface doubly so, esp. when he waxed on about it then casually mentioned he covered it with electrical tape). His eulogizing of the iPhone as a camera shows just how much I am not this guy - I use the phone cam, but the ~30mm focal length can be a pain. You can't always get closer.
The output at higher ISO looks nice, new sensors really are getting better on this front. Happily, you don't need a $4200 Leica to enjoy this.
The fixed 28mm prime means I'd never want one (600mm still feels like it's not long enough sometimes). The author does travel/street photography. Even for travel photography I like being able to swap in a wide-angle sometimes, and I shoot often with a 600mm even when traveling.
