About the flash pop up, you are saying that even if you have the
flash turned off it pops up all the time? Can you turn the flash off?
Do you have to push it back down each time you turn the camera off?
Does that mean that the camera wastes battery charging the flash each
time you turn it on? Does it make a noise when it pops up? I don't
know if I'd like that, the noise would announces that "hey, someone's
taking a picture" every time I'd turn it on. Wow, kind of a deal
breaker for me, I had heard this but was hoping that there was an off
setting.

One video I saw on it seemed to show that it didn't pop up, but instead motored up as the lens extended, possibly by being mechanically linked to the extending of the lens at power up. I'd be curious to know from the OP if this perception is correct.
