Summary: I have been through 3 different cameras so far. My first camera was a top of the line Canon and I just wasn't satisfied. So I thought I needed a fancier camera and ended up buying a Sony nex-3 mirrorless camera but wanted a zoom to it. So I bought the 200mm lens.
Excerpt: I use my camera almost every day taking photos of various things. I get great shots with my camera and I take lots of photos of my grand children and flowers, pets, birds, etc .. I love my camera
Pros: Easy To Use, Good Image Quality, Good Image Stabilization, Good in Low Light, Large Clear LCD
Summary: I like the camera very much does everything it's supposed to do the only reason I deducted one star was because of the poor handling and shipping and tracking it took approximately 10 days to ship the camera 900 miles .the only thing I dislike about the camera is the slow automatic focusing on most...
Excerpt: I own both Canon and Nikon DSLR's and Canon and Panasonic Lumix pocket cams. This was purchased as a replacement to a Minolta A1 and to get a larger zoom and MP camera in a simlar form factor to the Minolta.
Summary: Great zoom and image stabilization. The different automatic modes are basic, but efficient. I have an SLR camera and the comparison may not be fair, as the capabilities on the SLR are far superior. However, I wanted something smaller to carry around on quick trips.
