Excerpt: I purchased one of these little numbers to replace a Panasonic TZ-6 which I considered very overrated, and is intended to compliment my DSLR. I was immediately impressed by the small size, and classy looks. I have owned Canon IXUS compacts before, so I found operating the camera very intuitive. I have found image quality to be good, noise control particularly is very good.
Summary: My daughter uses it on the bus with her team but last weekend the newspaper photographer did not show up for a special event in town and my daughter happened to have her new camera and was able to take pictures that came out great.
Pros: Easy To Use, Fast/accurate auto-focus, Good Image Quality, Good Image Stabilization, Good in Low Light, Large Clear LCD, Nice Body Color, Short Lag Time, Small / Compact
