KP with PLM zoom lens is awesome as point and shoot. Quality of images is good. Camera is light- however see downsides....
I wanted a PLM 55-300mm zoom, so needed to upgrade from the KP5ii to the KP. Build quality really is not a match, hand grip is a nightmare- even largest adaptor is barely useable for an average man's hand, handbook is not much help as a guide! And you can't autofocus whilst in film mode..... no that simply is not right- you have had this issue since at least the KP5 and you still haven't resolved this- in 5 years. Come on chaps.
