Regardless of all the mixed sort of reviews on the internet I bought this model after a serious research and thought.
Initially the software was quite buggy but after a few updates it has become far more usable and close to being perfect. People wont understand the benefits of having this device unless they use one. I'd recommend it over the QX30 and in some ways over the QX1 (Keeping Handiness and point & shoot in mind) while I'd recommend it over Galaxy Cam lineup any day. The picture quality is simply matchless.
Typical of Sony, the product is unfortunately very weakly marketed. So much so that while travelling outside Pakistan it often happened with me that some European, American or Asian person (Some even carrying DSLRs) would inquire me about the gadget out of their intrigue and fascination having no prior information about it.
I hope Sony will not abandon the Lens Style Camera altogether as its actually a great handy alternative to have.
