Strengths:    Size, Leica 10x Optical Zoom, simple to use, good recovery time, generally sharp images, screen size.

Weaknesses:    For my casual use none that are important.

Bottom Line:   
I've owned many 35mm SLR cameras with mutlple lenses over the years and do extensive foreign travel. I decided to simplify and I believe this compact camera has fulfilled my basic needs.
