I bought 2 - one for my travel bag and one for my wife. Like the wide zoom range, small physical size.

Very Fast, Versatile and Handy little camera. Great for Point and Shoot. Great for Macros. Only downside is slightly noisy photos. If not enlarging or creating prints greater than 8R should be OK. I'm using this camera for snapshots, travel and my blog. If you want to see some sample R3 shots, can visit my blog at kooshlog.blogspot.com
