"Not as good as the Sony but very good camera"

Love this product and cannot go on about it enough - have used it almost everyday. The build quality is superb and it really feels that it has been put together well. Battery life is great and you will get the whole day out of it easily, I always buy a spare just in case. Memory size is ok, so you will need to buy another memory card to go with it but that is just normal with these cameras. It also features a very simple autofocus function so you can just point and click away and won't end up with a load of blurred photos at the end of the week when you come to review them! Would recommend getting the extras with it though - try and get a tripod and a carry case that you can put on your belt or round your neck - if you just put it in your handbag or whatever, you might not be able to get it out in time ti take those very quick shots as something unfolds.
