Mystery Camera Review from dpreview:
For photographers looking for SLR quality in a smaller package, this camera delivers both with confidence and grace, while offering all of the advantages of a large APS-C sensor.

Mystery Camera Features:
Reasons to buy
- High ISO shots are quite usable, even above ISO 6400: At higher sensitivities JPEGs have very little smearing or color noise.
- Excellent LCD and responsive touchscreen: The camera has a fixed 3″ LCD with a snappy, well-designed touchscreen interface.
- Full HD video recording and stereo mic jack: This camera lets you record 1080/30p video with respectable autofocus performance and a stereo microphone jack.
Things to consider
- AF illuminator integrated into flash: For extra focusing assistance in low light situations you’ll need to have the flash popped up.
- Focusing in live view and video modes can be slow: While improved over previous models, focusing in live view mode is still quite sluggish.
- Raw dynamic range lags behind its peers: This camera doesn’t capture as wide a tonal range as some of its competitors, which affects how much detail you can ‘pull back’ from shadows.
