The optical viewfinder may now be gone, but the upside is room for a slightly larger screen.
Pros: 4x zoom with wide angle coverage., Effective optical image stabilization., Very good image quality., SDXC card compatible.
Cons: Slow continuous shooting., No optical zoom while filming., Optical viewfinder now gone.
