For those who haven't seen them on the AP forum. The links below take you to shots saved as 100% quality JPEGS (except 3 & 4 which were saved at 90% to get them under Flickr's 10MB limit) with no PP done on them.

Handling wise, I found it easy to use, even at hip height looking down at the screen at a fairly acute angle.

Certainly looks like a cracking wee camera. Is there any noticable shutter lag? Motion smooth enough onscreen?

No discernable shutter lag at all Andy and motion is smooth enough for me. It also has a trick up it's sleeve in that it will simulate the chosen shutter speed if you want, so you can see how the picture will appear. Not too useful for those of us who know the rough sppeds you need to capture action, but handy enough for beginnners. :cool:

Cheers Barney. I'm mostly interested in how quick it reacts to a single shot without flash that has been pre-focussed....i.e., you're holding the shutter half pressed waiting only for the right moment. Perhaps it's even faster at that than a top spec DSLR? IIRC things like rangefinders are generally faster than SLRs because they don't have a mirror to flip out the way....does the same apply to these wee digi things? (toddles off to look up websites for saddos with stats:rolleyes:)

Am I right in thinking the 20mm pancake goes from f/1.7 to f/16?

At 38mm (equiv. for FF) my compact only goes from f/2.7 to f/4.3 before I have to zoom in and step back to get smaller apertures on bright days. Sometimes the lowest ISO of 50 and fastest shutter speed of 1/2000th limits me to doing that to avoid blowing the highlights....would be nice to be able to stop down a bit instead.
