This product was shipped super fast. I ordered it on Wednesday and had it in my hands by Friday. Unfortunately, for a few reasons I returned this product the same day.
I bought this camera to be a step up from my previous Canon super-compact. However, the feature that I was looking for most in the new camera was FAST focus. This camera does not; it takes a second to a second and a half to focus. I suspect that the picture quality is better because of it, but for me it is more important that camera take pictures fast.
Although I only had the camera for a few hours it seemed to have a nice screen, clear options and a quality build for the price.

Thank you for your response Ali.
What camera is best for each person depends on that person's needs. I take sports pictures for a small local newspaper sometimes, so I need a camera that can take passable shots of moving subjects, therefore a rapid focus. This does not appear to be a need of yours, which I respect. What I find strange is that you take the time and effort to deride my review.

Thanks for noting the time needed to focus. A rapid focus would also be important to me, as all-too-often, a couple of seconds is all it takes for that perfect photo opp to vanish.

I agree on the focus. I tried on of these out in the store and though I loved it, it took too long to focus. What did you end up with?
