Comments on this external microphone:
- Lens focus motor operation is inaudible, surprisingly. So for casual shoot with autofocus enabled (& good ambient light), audio is useful. UPDATE: motor operation is audible but lower compared to the onboard mic.
- Rubber bands indeed look flimsy. Use with care!
- Pretty light. Well, with camera-lens that weighs around 2.5kg, mic weight is not significant.
