I am seriously contemplating buying this camera, but need to know what the onboard mic is like for recording low frequencies at gigs.

I'm going to guess it'll sound terrible. The internal mics didn't sound great in my tests. In fact, I used an external audio recorder with an Azden shotgun mic rather than use the internal audio for some interviews I recorded.

I missed your review yesterday; just got around to reading it now. Well done! its refreshing to read something that is actually objective rather than overly gushy or defensive. You are an excellent representative for the market Sony is trying to reach, and very articulate in identifying how you got "here" from "there"

Wow thanks for the kind words! I'm just a guy who likes to take photos, and needed a decent camera for an event I run. Here are lots of photos taken at my event this week: http://www.flickr.com/photos/sfoskett/sets/72157624840672099/ (warning: mostly people sitting around at a meeting)
