I bought this camera last year as a backup for my DSLR and because I wanted something small yet complex enough to take on holiday. It didn't disappoint, the 15X optical zoom is plenty enough and it is packed full of extras such as smart auto and loads of different scenes, one thing I would say is don't bother too much with the scenes as the EXR setting chooses the best settings for you. You also have the option to change the cameras aperture and shutter speed which is limited as would be expected with a compact but which is a great feature. The camera also looks very smart and you have a small grip at the front making it easier to point and shoot. There is a trigger for the zoom rather than buttons which makes it a lot easier and there is a wheel for changing settings rather than having to go through the camera settings to change everything. However there are some bad points about the camera, after a few months of having the camera I noticed the pop up flash started to get a bit flimsy, not a problem if you are careful with it and it is still working fine, also the text has started to wear off the buttons so you have to remember what each one does, these are both just minor issues and the positives of this camera definitely outweigh the negatives.
