Tried to love it, ended up hating it - most likely defective

Summary: I've had this for over 2 years; it was a replacement for a Sony point and shoot which produced amazing detail and clarity. I'm not going into all the details here, but after reading reviews and coming back to read them again here and elsewhere, I can only conclude that my camera is defective. It has always had focusing issues no matter what settings I choose.
Summary: In 2012, Nikon enacted a new and ugly repair policy. Nikon no longer sells its parts to independent consumers or to independent camera dealers. If, for example, you drop your camera and damage the LCD screen, you will not be able to purchase a replacement screen to fix the camera yourself nor will you be able to work with a reputable camera dealer in your area. If a Nikon camera needs repair, it must be shipped to the Nikon Repair Center.
Summary: I'm not a newbie...have been with cameras for years. Just got a P7100, and have sent it back. Even on the LCD, the pictures were overexposed, confirmed when I did bracketing. At -1 F Stop the picture was just right. I have a Nikon D 80, and that gave me underexposed shots, had to send it to the factory twice. So am through with Nikon. Just bought a Canon G12 and absolutely love it.
Summary: There are at least 16 complaints on Amazon regarding the lens cover not opening on the P7000. There are many more on other sites. If you believe that Nikon should be able to dodge these complaints by simply changing the model number from P7000 to P7100, then you won't like this review. Just tick "not helpful" and don't bother to read further. I bought the P7000 and within 7 months the lens cover stopped opening fully. This is a common and well known defect.
Summary: nikon has to be kidding, this terrible photo editing that comes with the camera is not only the worst, but the raw files isn't compatible with apple photo editing software such as aperture 3 or iPhoto that is powerful and does a great job.....in fact, this loser photo editing tries to move your existing photo files to it's folder plus it isn't easy to use. ...cheap move nikon.....
Summary: I am and always have been a Nikon guy. But my "point and shoot" cameras were always Canon as I thought they had the best features and that Canon had better R and D for those types of cameras. I was a professional photojournalist for 45 years, so I know cameras and their ability to produce quality images. I currently own a Nikon D-7000 and several lenses. I also own and love my small point and shoot "shirt pocket" camera -- a Canon S-95.
Summary: Per me i prodotti Nikon hanno chiuso. Sara' anche un buon modello ma preferisco altre marche. G 12. Non ho gradito che la "vecchia F70" una volta arrivata in quel di Torino e smontata per trovare il guasto mi sia stato detto che il guasto è stato trovato, che la riparazione costava circa 200€, ma che se la volevo rimontata dovevo pagare circa 70€. Prodotti Nikon, saranno anche buoni ma no grazie.
Excerpt: Перед покупкой я сравнивал сабж с топ-компактами Кэнон G12 и Фуджи Х10. Кэнон отсеялся, как потерявший доверие из-за поломки предыдущего G7. Фуджи не прошёл из-за непривычной эргономики и малой кратности зума, хотя его заметное преимущество - б0льшая матрица.
Pros: Мне был важен семикратный зум, которого нет у других топ-компактов. Поэтому и выбрал эту камеру.
Cons: -Неудобно расположенные кнопки мешают держат камеру;
