Strengths: Full featured: HD video, 15x zoom, wide angle.
Good build feel and weight.
Good grip position and overall ergo design.
Good IQ and saturated colors in bright light.
Weaknesses: Inconsistent focus, esp. in video mode and at long zoom.
Purple streaks appear on LCD in bright light - these don't appear in still shots, but do sometimes appear on videos.
Overall video quality not very good despite HD resolution.
Tends to overexpose highlights.
Lot of noise in low light.
Menu required for some common functions (such as self timer;) where others have buttons.
Below average weather resistance and overall sturdiness/reliability. (Problems encountered were: the LCD died permanently, battery door insecure and can pop open.)
Has had tendency to eat batteries at random; sometimes will work for only 20 minutes before depleting freshly recharged batteries.
