The casing is very solid and high quality. Last holiday it has survived an involuntary fall from 1.5 meters to the hard Teerbelag with a small dent. The camera continues to work properly. Top!
Operation is intuitive and very easy. You can also engage in automatic mode using the aperture ring.
The pre-set scene modes all work quite reliable.
The picture quality is really great. The large sensor does a good job. Up to ISO 400 hardly any difference to our DSLR can be detected, in addition, the image quality can be for something to ISO 1600 but it is still absolutely useful!
Very practical is the maximum aperture at wide angle of 1.8. Thus you can do hand with very good picture quality even in churches, etc. photos free. In telephoto the maximum aperture begins at 4.9 - if that's not enough, can access the MK3, but this is even more expensive.
The camera has no hot shoe, is not so tragic. WiFi and other bells and whistles we do not need.
For us, therefore, the choice for MK1 was clear and correct.
We would buy the camera at any time.
