Review Excerpt

  • Compact and very attractive; water, dust, and freeze-proofed design; useful zoom range from a healthy wide angle to a moderate telephoto; good performance for its form-factor.

  • Poor ergonomics and clumsy user interface; noise present even at base ISO, becomes obtrusive by ISO 3,200; lens is soft in the corners and rather dim.
