i'm confused. seems like just a gallery of the camera. normally an article labelled "hands-on" will include at least a little commentary... am i missing something? is there no opinion at least on the camera from your time with the camera? i'm mostly interested in 3 things which are actually video related, one of them applies to photography.
1. how is the aliasing & moire in video compared to the mark 1?
2. is it better than the previous model in low-light at all? even by just 1/2 a stop?
3. is the lens soft fully extended to 200mm in video or photos?

and comments will help tremendously
