Got mine in the mail last Friday. have tried a few shots. Like the reviews say the eyepiece is not good but the screen is. So far I like what I see, it may take a while to learn how to use it . The 1200 is stretching it a bit but 800 or so might be real good.
I'm having a hard time figuring out the manual focus, I just can't see it in the eyepiece or screen.
I'm starting to learn how to use a bunch of the other features though. This camera has a lot going on.
Nice! John, although the eyepiece is not as sharp as the screen, I find it easier to follow and find things with the eyepiece when things are rushed because it's more intuitive - but that's just me. Dee, I haven't even touched manual focus yet! I did take a movie of a Heron though, and the camera concentrated on the background - just need to set a different type auto-focus.
I was photographing 2 eagles when they decided to mate - or try to. This was in the Methow Valley, Washington this week. 1st shot was about 100x. Other 3 were with 50x hand held. I ended up missing some of the action while I fumbled with the camera. I threw in one of Goat Wall up in Mazama too. And then one with the upper headwall above the skier zoomed in on.
