Summary: i love my camera. the pictures are such a huge step up form my s110. i'm very happy i decided to upgrade before my cruise. the package with accessories was a bit odd, it seemed like some random camera stuff that didn't necessarily apply to this camera.
Summary: Very good camera, closer to a 1/1.7 camera than to a DSLR. Once you've accepted that, you won't have unreasonable expectations. In most respects aside from say 1 hour of daylight and the 20mp resolution, 1/1.7 cameras such as the S120, the G16 or the LX7 are better because optics are more...
Summary: The camera is great and it arrived really fast. It's way better and has tons more features than my old, less advanced Canon, and although it's heavier, still fits easily in a small purse. A few squabbles: The manual has ridiculously small type and is totally illegible even with reading glasses.
Summary: It's not perfect (what is?), but this is possibly the best compact camera out there for photographers who are looking for a compact to complement their DSLR. Someday I may find one that gets five stars; for now this is it. Pros: In good light, image quality is nearly as good as my Rebel XT.
Love it; great compromise between serious features - SLR - and compact size. Good old-school range finder feel

Summary: Shot with a Canon AE-1 for many years. Just got into digital a few years back. Like the convenience of shooting digital, and really liked the compact size of many digital cameras. But did miss the features of my old SLR.
