In the end, as long as the picture looks good, that's all that really matters.
Too many people fighting a fight that's won by any tool that can at least do the objectives the user needs out of the tool. One can literally use a cheap P&S cam and stitch a load of images to make a superior image than a Nikon D800, or one can get something closer to or the D800 and make life easier and also not deal with static only subjects needing to be stitched.
Autofocus system lags behind the competition, especially in low light
Chunky body defeats the purpose of mirrorless design; ergonomics leave something to be desired
Display on LCD screen can be hard to see in bright light
Redeye a problem, no in-camera removal tool
Unusually severe rolling shutter effect in movie mode, exacerbated by SR vibration reduction
No continuous autofocus in movie mode
Frustrating rubber flap over memory card slot and I/O ports; some buttons are hard to reach
Continuous shooting in RAW mode limited to 1 frame/sec
No built-in EVF, (and no provision for adding an external one)
1: firmware 1.01 seems to have fixed that.
2: this belongs in the pro column. That "clunky" body allows it to use the traditional K-mount. I can buy a 50/1.4 for $100. I've noticed that without the battery pack bulge that it's easier to hold than something like the a57(also a DSLT). It being thicker than a 4/3 aids in stability when using a decent zoom lens on it.
3: we haven't had an issue in the FL sun.
4: I haven't had that issue and wouldn't care. PP removal is far superior to in camera.
5/5a: I haven't used it for video so I can't comment.
6: that's just weird. The rubber flap comes open easily and the sdcard door is easily reachable.
7: yeah. I agree. I think they didn't want it to compete too much with the K-5. I haven't had a need to take more than a picture a second thought.
8: meh, i kind of like it without a viewfinder. Focus peaking and zoom on the display are awesome!
