Summary: I ordered this combo Dec. 29th and received it Jan 3rd. I've received an email from Focus Camera thanking me for the purchase and to let them know if anything was amiss. The gadget bag is about the perfect size for the camera and its essential accessories. I have not actually used the camera yet; I'll update this review as I gain experience. REVISION: (There IS a viewfinder focusing control; Instruction Manual parts ID item 23. Nowhere is this control explained).
Summary: Prelim look at most of the camera functions seems okay so far. I will update this review if things change. I bought this item used and the shipper had put it in a box a quarter of an inch too small to contain it. Thus I received a box with a dome-like bulge on one end of it, where the retracted lens was pushing up. Yikes!
Summary: This camera takes fantastic pictures! We took it to Hawaii and it was able to work with all types of lighting and scenery. This camera was put to the test with others in my tour group that had the expensive Canon cameras. The best thing about this is that you can zoom in without needing to change out your lens. Even the professional photographer in the group couldn't get over on how well the pictures it took with a built in lens.
Summary: This is surprisingly a very good camera for the price. First and foremost it has the Carl Zeiss lens which I think makes a big difference. This camera is packed with features like of a Dslr but with additional fun creative options. I also like the articulating lcd screen. It's easy to use the settings from Auto to Manual operations so it's more than just a point and shoot camera. So far I've been very happy with the quality of the pictures i have taken.
The camera came new and perfect condition. Worked good as expected

Summary: The camera came new and perfect condition. Worked good as expected. This cam is very good in giving quality pictures even in dark. Used it all over my trip in 2014 Christmas vacation. Value for money and totally recommend.
Excerpt: Great all in one camera. Carl Zeiss lens is very sharp.24 to 1200 what more could you ask for an all in 1 lens. Down falls electronic zoom control is not all that precise, eye level finder very poor, for this price range. Despite those 2 down falls. It great all in one camera for taveling light. Macro is good, street photograph, action, and any task you put it to.
Pros: Easy to Use, Fast Shutter Speed, Good Battery Life, Good in Low Light, Great Resolution, Great Zoom, Large Clear LCD, Small / Compact
Summary: Haven't had the camera for long so far, but it's already been used to take some amazing pictures! While not in the realm of what a professional would likely prefer, for hobbyists/enthusiasts, I think this is a hard one to beat. I'm still playing with all the different settings, and have had a lot of fun using it for family photos, sunrises, and nifty time-lapse shots. And the kit with all the extras is pretty nice to have.
Summary: OK, I just got this for Christmas and I am in love! First of all, all the accessories are fantastic - 3 batteries, case, strap, lens cover, 32 gb card, tripod, car charger... Also, it is a great camera. I love how the LCD screen pulls out and pivots which is really handy when using the timer/tripod for pictures. It is also a lot lighter than many cameras this size, but has a great grip and feels good in your hands.
