"Simple easy to use controls"
Simple easy to use controls, lightweight comfortable in the hand. The pictures taken so far have been very clear, simple to transfer for storage. The lens really does help eliminate shake and I'm glad I went for this combination. I haven't yet had a chance to put the battery life to test yet, but I don't see a problem. The menu hasn't been fully tested yet but as mentioned the controls are quite intuitive. The flash is good and I'm very happy with that. I'm now thinking of adding a tripod or support stick so that I can be more adventurous when taking photos. Another point where I've had success is night photography there have been a few planets visible as well as the moon, good for trialling.
