Cost Performace

I bought this camera and using it since 1-year. The speed is amazing and during theater performance it has helped me get amazing shots. Controls are very well laid. I find it to be comfortable to use so far and my other home mates too. It surpassed my expectations, has high picture quality. It really impressed me for portraits
