"I'm not kidding."

Simply because they just use the kit lenses the cameras come with. Wonderful color, clarity and detail. Low light seems to be better than the GH4 or G7. With its kit lens, there are several focusing aids. Dynamic range on this camera is also very impressive.

"I am not disappointed."

I can't recommend the Olympus enough. But, this fps was rather limited. Low light is extraordinarily good. Olympus mirrorless system has been advancing rapidly. But white balance flips out often.

"It's a REAL camera."

Maybe it is for a small POS. Love that a strap, case and lens cover came with it, among other things. I am so impressed with this Canon 1096C001! It's very easy to clean up noise in postprocessing by using noise ninja or neat image. Better photos than her XR phone.
