Comments:

This was bought for my wife, who is a "point & shoot" person - she's artistic and can compose nice shots, but very "technically challenged". Neither of us have ever owned Nikon or Canon, so you will see no "brand loyalty" here. When you first pick up the camera, you can't help but notice that is is ergonomically well designed and very light. It's an easy camera to travel with all day and not get tired. And don't forget the great zoom capability - you get get up very close while still being far away, with nice colors and sharpness. For instance, I took a picture of a car about 1000' away at full optitical zoom, and although a little blurry, the license plate was quite readable. In researching what camera to get, the closest competitor was a 50x from Canon. I did a lot of research, and found the bokeh on the Canon very weird and unpleasant. As a dSLR person, I would not hesitate to take this camera on a trip for picture taking. Note - it does not have the best reputation for taking videos, and I haven't tried that yet. It was designed to be primarily a superzoom, and that it does very well. BTW, I deducted 1 star because it does not have threads on the lens for a filter. You cannot mount a protectuve UV filter or a polarizer. Check out the photos I submitted. They are jpg's right out of the camera, no post processing other than cropping a little of the foreground to keep them under the required 5MB limit.
