Summary: Cons: 1. Sloppy lurching zoom, Wholly unacceptable at this price point! 2. Battery Life is pathetic, Meter reads: 72 minutes. Actual:less than 30. Yikes! 3. Touch interface is ridiculously complicated and overly sensitive and poorly calibrated! 4. Focus knob does not actully manually focus anything. It's electronic, unreliable, and useless! 5. Would not play nice with THREE different 16GB class[X] SDHC cards. Finally got a 4GB class[II] to work... Go figure. 6.
