It is not as simple and straightforward to use because, what could be its main advantage, the lens f/1.4. You can even turn into a defect.

Often the sensor is achieved by too much light, and it is therefore, clear why it was built in ND filter to avoid a more than frequent overexposure. It is certainly very useful, but it is equally certain that it is inconvenient to have to activate each time browsing for a few pages of the menu.

Among other things worth mentioning, battery life is not very high and the inability to navigate the menu while the camera is saving the shot on the memory card.
