Summary: Amazing Camera, Great shots, and very adjustable. My opinion would be that there should be some experience with other cameras before learning this one because of all the settings and functions. Auto Focus does assist quite a bit.
Conclusion: nothing bad to say about this camera if you thinking about getting one stop thinking and get it I'm glad i did. I did alot of research before getting a camera and all signs pointed to this one.
Pros: good battery life, quiet, Nice features/settings, Quick Start-up time, excellent image quality, Superior build quality, Bright LCD, Solid Operation, Lightweight/Portable, Simple controls/menu, easy to use
Summary: Purchased online at walmart.com for less than $450. The camera work great and the picture way better than my point and shoot canon. It does require some learning but it's totally worth my time.
