Sadly, I just snapped one up. I say sadly because I got one a couple of weeks ago from Amazon France ... and left it on my car roof on Saturday. Now gone. I just had to get another. The low-light focusing is spectacular, and the IQ and build quality are remarkably good, as other members have shown. Note to self: always check car roof before driving off.

it is a freakishly good camera and I have been overjoyed at how good a camera it is for Urban Exploration. Low light situations the fast lens and IS comes into it's own and inbuilt HDR mode. Love it.

I can't get over how much improved modern compact cameras are. I wrung the neck out of mine in Majorca, taking no other camera, and it never let me down. Lots of detail and the dynamic range is far wider than a small sensor ought to be. It's like the laws of optical physics have been rewritten.

All it needs is a faster processor and viewfinder and it would be perfect.
Best wishes,

Andrew

Here's hoping the mx2 has a magnetic base.
