Had this camera since 2004.
-It is built rock solid. All metal body has taken much abuse internationally for 7+ years, and still going strong.
-It is small enough to be very pocket-able, in fact I almost never use the camera case, because the lens fully retracts and is protected.
-Picture quality is very good, because it is 5 Megapixels and good sensor, not trying to squeeze maximum megapixels into a tiny sensor.
-Nice features for a P+S camera when it was released. E.g. a 30s minimum shutter.
-Battery life is ridiculously long. Weeks sometimes before recharging.
-The flash stopped working in 2010, probably after thousands of shots. It did its job.
-The sensor is highly prone to dust, as many people have reported. I took it apart, cleaned it, but dust appeared soon after.
-The control wheel is slowly losing its callibration, selects incorrect modes. Just wear and tear over time I guess.
In Conclusion, the P100 has been an absolutely solid camera since purchase. It's slowly dying but I'll continue to use it until I run it to the ground!
