Interesting review. Not sure I agree with the negative points raised though:

1. Menu system can be improved on later versions of the software.

2. 'Small' sensor: the size (1") is exactly the same as of the much praised (elsewhere on this site) Sony R100 (!). Sure, it's no APS-C, but the test shots show it can be used with ISO 800 for sure, and possibly more on a pinch. Further, one can use a Nikon DX lens and profit from the sweetest, central spot and get great results I'd bet. Finally, the whole idea of the mirrorless systems is about being reasonably small yet with decent performance.

3. What would have helped are comparison shots with similar mirrorless cameras, as well as shots of resolution patterns in order to quantify the resolution of the sensor+lens.
