But $1200 for a compact camera? It has a lot of decent software features from the higher end Sony cameras, but it won't be anywhere near as good quality as, for example, a cheaper A6400, particularly in low light.

And I love how manufacturers like to quote the 35mm equivalent for the focal length, but not for the f-stop, just so they can have the best of both specifications.

In many ways, it's an impressive camera, but I don't really know who it's for.
