The lens only offers a 3x optical zoom (considerably less than the two opposite), with a 35mm equivalent length of 28-84mm, making it suitable for shots of landscapes or people, while the f/2-4.9 aperture allows for some great low-light shooting. The ISO runs from 125-12,800, with images at ISO 3200 still looking respectably clean. You can also set your camera to shoot RAW files, or you can stick with JPEGs. 

The in-built pop-up flash supports X-sync, meaning you can shoot at up to 1/2000sec, though it isn’t powerful enough to make a big difference at higher shutter speeds. We also love the bright 1040k-dot touchscreen and the Wi-Fi, Bluetooth and NFC options let you transfer your images to your smart device.
