StevenE: small sensor, no swivel screen, limited lenses ...

.... what does this system offer?

I don't think anyone who uses a 1000mm lens will even consider a camera that does not have a viewfinder and hides manual controls deeply in the menu.

Being able to take pictures without a mechanical shutter is an interesting idea. I hope we will see that (at least as an option) on future cameras with larger sensors.

A camera like this is called "higher spec" now?

In my opinion a p&s needs to have a good full auto mode. But I never understand the benefit of these scene modes.
What is the difference between "portrait" and "beauty"? Should I use "dog" or "cat" mode if it is an elephant? Why not just implement PASM modes? Manufactors obviously think buyers of compact cameras are idiots. But this is a $400 camera. For that price it should have a 1/1.8'' sensor, RAW mode, manual focus and manual/semi auto modes.
