Can't think of any at the moment.

Michael, London

Score 8.0/10
Good points:
Excellent image quality and very rapid response - fast focus and very small shutter lag. Optical viewfinder is a definite plus point which many other manufacturers have abondoned. Very good macro at the wide angle settings. Unusually long zoom at the tele end, for a compact.
Bad points:
Not obvious when image has failed to focus - the warning light is out of vision when concentrating on the screen. No indication of battery charge until it has pretty well run out: very sudden with virtually no warning. Can be surprisingly slow at loading images onto the card, apparently randomly - generally quick but every now and then it takes quite a few seconds.

Ray, Sutton

Score 9.0/10
Good points:
Full manual controls giving the flexibility and control of an DSLR in the form of a compact. Viewfinder is a nice touch.
Bad points:
images can look a little over processed sometimes. high ISO (400+) is very noisy in low light. LCD screen could be better.
