I bought this camera one week after it came out. I wanted something with features of a Digital SLR, but without having to reach for a different lens to change if a different setting crops up. You could actually miss the shot with a Digital SLR doing that. My main decision in buying was what batteries it took and memory card. With AA, you can buy these anywhere. No special and expensive battery to buy. Uses SD cards which are widely available and less expensive than other types.
The only things that are negative is the memory card is located with the battery area on the bottom. No Bulb function. Only 1.5 fps shooting.
Pluses are has a hot shoe, can be remotely controlled by computer, A LOT of shooting configurations including a custom setting. Down to zero Macro focus. Can add wide angle and telephoto lenses for even wider range with the use of an adapter (can also use screw on filters then!).
You can completely customize this camera to yourself.
So in summary, can be used as a simple point and shoot camera for those who don't care to know all the variations or can be done with settings that are as professional as it gets. A great camera and have NO regrets in buying this.
