Our Take
The build of this camera is top notched, not just aesthetically pleasing but rugged as well. The zoom range is very useful. The sharpness in the center of the image is good. But the border sharpness is a huge letdown. Flawless ergonomics, two card slots, a huge range of lens options, good high ISO performance, and range, the resolution is great, Shake Reduction on every lens. This is a great camera for the price.
