I'm quite impressed with this little camera (Samsung EX1/TL500), it is in my opinion the digital equivalent of a Pentax KX or MX of an era long gone. A simple rugged photographic tool without too many bells and whistles to bog you down while creating images. The image quality is close to that of Micro 4/3s, yet the camera is smaller and the lens is significantly faster and wider (based on an equivalent 4/3s lens). The lens is exceptional to boot, outclassing competitors like the Panasonic LX3 or the Canon S90.


This camera won't replace my SLR most of the time, but when I want to go really light and still have the ability to capture publishable images this will be the go to camera. The rest of the time my wife will have one hell of a point and shoot to capture low light images with.
