I've been testing out a fair few superzoom models lately, have to say the images from the Canon stack up very well compared to some rivals.
My quick fire summary of good and bad points

Pros:
+ Excellent image quality for a small 1/2.3" sensor, I was able to get even respectable results in raw up to ISO 1600
+ Nice big zoom range, 50.00x giving a 24-1200mm equivalent
+ Lens has good optics, whilst not perfectly sharp at the 24mm in the corners it's across the range consistent and pretty sharp even at the top 1200mm mark (some rivals drop down in quality here)
+ Swivel LCD is quite good, 461k is decent enough but not class leading
+ Jpegs are decent enough with appealing colours, but soften up a bit at IOS 800 and up, I'd suggest raw for more details
+ Full HD video with stereo sound and AF/zoom, mostly quite good quality
+ AF performance was mostly accurate, not a speed demon though (acceptable)
+ Well featured, lots of filters, modes, full manual controls, electronic level
+ Has a hot shoe
+ IS works well about 3-4 stops with no problems

Cons:
- EVF is a bit weak, low ish resolution 202,000 dots it's usuable but could be a bit better
- No eye sensor to switch between EVF and the back LCD
- Lens speed is below average starts at f3.4 ends up at f6.

Fantastic lens. Brilliant anti-shake I can take most things on full zoom handheld with a bit of practice. Exposure and picture quality excellent.
But.
The automatics nowhere near compare with my older Panasonic.
Few scene modes (sunset would be good), no multipoint focussing, so depth of field difficult to set up.
No spot focussing, so the focussing square usually not on what you want and difficult to move it. (A central spot focus would be useful).
Buttons, particularly the video, are in very silly places and keep triggering by mistake if you hold the camera on the grips. I am having to hold it on the sides to avoid hitting something with the ball of my thumb.
The Good.
Takes excellent pictures particularly with the zoom.
The viewfinder is better than I expected, better than some other bridges I tried out. Plus it defaults to turned on when the LCD screen is kept turned into the camera which suits me fine because I'm old school and use the viewfinder most of the time anyway.

This is the best camera I have ever had and that number is quite a few This camera is so precise and the video is superb. I have Blue tits nesting in a box in my garden and I have managed to take a great video of them coming and going.

This product was supposed to be brand new. Don't think this was true. Box very battered and camera strap tied with an elastic band ?? Camera looked okay so I kept it as was a Christmas present. I think if something states it's brand new this should be what you get. On the plus side it did arrive in plenty of time for Xmas.
