Great point and shoot camera. It's not a small camera. Very good glass. My only complaint is having to charge the battery in the camera. Overall, the best money I have ever spent on a camera.

This is the only camera I considered-after considerable research-for a pack light trip to the UK. The website - dpreview - is very positive on it. The Carl Zeiss 20-200 mm lens at 2.8 throughout the range was what originally attracted me. Sony is spot on with their cameras. I am an advanced amateur my pro level SLR gear is all Nikon.
Pros: Fast Glass Wide zoom range.
Cons: No AC adapter and external battery charger. I bought one and an extra battery.

As a travel camera this is an excellent choice. It takes very good JPG images out of camera with no need for tweaking. The zoom range covers almost any situation I've encountered and being Carl Zeiss the images are stellar. This is not a pocket camera and has some heft to it. I currently own a Sony A65 and this camera is about the same weight and slightly smaller. It is a one camera solution. I have compared the RAW images of my A65 24MP crop sensor to the 20MP "large" sensor and the crop sensor is better. To most this probably wouldn't be noticeable but I am very critical on image quality. This is a great camera and I would definitely recommend it without hesitation
Pros: Super lens and zoom range, Compact all in one camera, well made with a great feel, great features
Cons: Not a professional grade image
