elaine, glasgow

Score 8.0/10
Good points:
good size though i think there is a new model which is more compact.I bought this for the 12x zoom and I am very pleased with the results. no loss in picture quality. I also love the extra viewfinder great for holidays in bright sun. Haven't used all features yet but I am looking forward to producing even better photographs of family, scenic views and pets. Ihave already got great stills of a red squirrel which I used zoom at maximum, great camera.

John, Ireland

Score 9.0/10
Good points:
This really is an excellent camera. The Cark Zeiss optics are superb, and I decided to go for not top of the range pixel depth in favour of better optics, and I haven't been disappointed. I've used the camera for a few months for sports, holidays, work etc, and its a delight to use. The 12X with optical stabiliser is a dream to use.
Bad points:
I was quite concerned about the feel of the plastics when I first got the unit. Whilst I still don't like the feel of them, my concern that they would easily scratch has not been borne out in practise, despite reasonably heavy use.
