Stick a 18mp full frame sensor in it and a sealed Mag alloy body on this and you'd have a winner.Even at £900.

Thank you...

for putting the actual range of lens in this review (as compared to the Nikon review).

30x is fairly meaningless without any reference.

One for the studio

At 445.000kg - this is a camera for the enthusiast!?

445kg...

No, we just weighed a hundred of them.

Not my morning!
