Nice selection of semimanual and manual controls; flexible lens in a compact body; very good photo quality.
Clean design, lots of creative control, impressive video
Average details at high ISO, Slow shottoshot performance, Tiny zoom rocker, High price
Lacking in standout features (zoom excepted)
Images show noticeable color fringing. Not suited for low light shooting without a flash. LCD's 16:9 aspect ratio means black bars around 4:3 images.
Zoom toggle can be difficult to use, Poor audio quality in video
Don’t care for design personally, No optical viewfinder, No HDMI cable included, Auto flash fires when it seems like it shouldn’t
Subpar audio capture in video mode, Plastic zoom toggle takes some getting used to
Somewhat slow performance (but on-par with competition in this category), Macro shots somewhat soft, No HDMI cable included, Mode dial hard to turn, Lens doesn't go as wide as competing models, No optical zoom for movies
Slow shooting performance; some awkward design aspects; unimpressive LCD.
Flash always pops-up even when disabled, Slow continuous shooting at full resolution, Zoom motor is audible when filming video, Widescreen monitor not ideal shape for 4:3 stills.

The camera weighs about 215 grams, heavier than a standard compact, but understandable considering the length of the lens. It’s also quite slim for what it offers.Design-wise, it looks pretty good. The front and back of the camera are either...-
