Pros: Lots of features make this a versatile camera. A quality 10.7x optical zoom with a 28-300mm range and super-fast ISO1600 at full resolution are the main attractions.
Cons: No image stabilization, and the flip-out screen looks very small. Noise levels at maximum sensitivity may not be acceptable to some.
