I got this camera as a 'travel camera' and boy was it worth it.

I was worried that the single focal length would cripple creativity well was I wrong.

The lens is superb and the sensor captures such detail that you don't need a telephoto to zoom in.

I've been a foveon enthusiast for years but even I was surprised at the huge and very noticable difference in quality between this camera and the Canon G10 that my partener carried. Not just in resolution but in the crispness, and clarity of the images.

Battery life wasn't good and being used to foveon processing helped. Not a camera for beginners even though it does excel at point and shoot.

Not good at low light either

A Superb tool.
