Pentax Optio P70 review

I bought this camera to replace my stolen Panasonic Lumix FX2. Important for me were weight, slimness and zoom range. Having had it for nearly 6 months now I can say I'm very pleased indeed. Fot me the most surprising thing was the image quality which I could never achieve with the Lumix which under or over exposed so many pictures as well as very bad colour representation.
The bad points (although I'd still buy this camera again or the P80 if it were stolen) are: Video is a little too shaky at 1280x720, Image storage slow although you get used to it (preferably slow and good quality than...), LCD difficult to see bright sunlight,

Problems:

Can't switch off autofocus audio response
