Pros: Nikon outdid themselves with myriad camera features on the P520, including GPS! The flip out view screen is superb and easily readable in bright daylight. Lots of in camera processing options and many really good scene options!
Cons: But all the truly neat and useful camera features in no way compensate for the EXTREMELY POOR IMAGE QUALITY! Even at ISO 80 (the lowest setting) the image noise is unacceptable. The camera's jpeg compression also contributes to the poor image quality and there is NO RAW option! Using the jpeg 'Fine' compression option, the jpeg artifacts just amplified the image noise.
