Summary: This is a good inexpensive camera, and it works really nicely. I got it for a twelve year old as his first digital camera, and he figured it out fairly quickly.

Summary: Great camera and lens. Look for update models in this line with somewhat high resolution. But don't get hung up on getting the highest resolution camera; 8 to 9 MP produce beautiful 8X10s with good sharpness and color saturation.
Summary: I bought the camera for vacation pix in Alaska. Worked great; then developed a grey/black smudge in every shot. Not a dirty lens!

Summary: First - I am done with Sony. I have owned two CyberShots - the first (2003) was extremely compact and was excellent. My 2nd CyberShot (2006) died in less than 1 year, cost more than the Panasonic, and had less features. I don't know what happened over at Sony but they have fallen behind.
