Excerpt: My first camera was a Fuji 9600 Bridge camera and I liked it well enough but didn't really know how to use it. I nevertheless proceeded to buy and use the following: Panasonic FZ8, FZ28, Canon 40d, Nikon D80, Nikon D90, Canon 500d, Pentax K-5, Samsung NX11, Nikon D7000, Pentax K-r, Canon SX50. In addition, and working in a Camera Store, I have had the chance to use many of the other makes and models up to the start of last year.
Excerpt: I have owned this camera and posted a picture that I took of my Super Glide. I had the pre 23 serial so the orbs were present. Solid build, great ergonomics, great glass, good zoom and best of all image quality is very good and all in one without carrying several lenses around. The battery life is amazing! The current price on GearShop is $350 a great deal to be sure.
