Blue rain (and Canon GX7 II)

A couple of snaps from this wet but fine evening.

(Click for big pic)

Camera: The new Canon GX7 II. So far I like it a lot. Crucially it focuses very fast indeed, even in poor light. Until pretty recently this was a big weakness of compacts.
It has a tilt-screen and goes to a 100mm-e tele, both of which are important to me.
And high-ISO seems good, the first pic is at ISO 1200. (It has a large sensor for a compact, a "one-inch" like the Sony RX100.)
The look and feel of it is excellent.
It's not the smallest compact ever, but it does fit in a breast pocket.
It has some nice details, for example it does not open into the widest wide-angle view like most compacts, but in the middle. That often saves time.

Nice!! Congrats!! Looks like it does really well, in low light; nice captures... :-)

Sorry, I'm having a hard timing believing that it would fit (and stay) in a breast pocket. Must be one large, industrial strength breast pocket!

Well, it fits in the three of my shirts I've tried.
Although admittedly it does weigh down the pocket. Except in my thick army shirt.
