I do real estate photography and this little camera works great for aerial photos
It is worth the moeny I paid. It is best used for freezing fast-action shots. I also used it for capturing great looking selfies with the Nikon's Wireless Mobile Utility App from my smart phone using the Nikon WU-1b Wireless Mobile Adapter. The results were really impressive. It also supports the Nikon FT1 Mount Adapter for F-Mount Lenses & 1 Series which I am yet to order. I am really looking forward to ordering that and extending its capabilities further. Also, it is the smallest Mirrorless camera with changeable lenses. It is fun to tag it along.
I love this camera. It's light, very fast, and has great features; although so far I've only used Program mode, I'm intrigued by the high contrast mode (in which two photos with different exposures are automatically melded together), and any one of the burst modes (where you can choose the best pictures at a critical point of a fast-changing scene -- or face). The two lenses dovetail nicely, with a great total focusing range.
