A few quick first impresssions:
* Image quality is outstanding - not just noise levels, but the color and tonality of the images competes with my D610. It's hard to quantify, but I'd also say they have a little more "soul" than the images out of the Nikon - really lovely results.
* The shutter is ridiculously quiet - I've been using the "noisy" mechanical shutter, and you can barely even hear that.
* AF is good enough that you rarely even think about it
* The manual aperture, shutter speed and exposure comp dials are a joy.
* Some of the switches are a little too easy to shift accidentally. (I'm looking at you, AF mode selector.)
* Battery life is acceptable, but I notice the camera sometimes fails to turn off automatically. Carrying a second battery is a must.
* The optical viewfinder with framing cues is great. I hardly ever used the electronic or hybrid viewfinder, further extending battery life.
Overall, it's a really refreshing change from shooting with a Nikon or an Olympus, it feels like you hardly interact with the electronics when shooting, and it just does what you want it to.
