Pros: Lots of features, Small, Great pictures, anti shake feature, HD Video, 14.1 MP
Cons: Heavy for it's size, don't drop it.
I bought this camera because I was impressed that it uses a Leica lens, since Leica cameras are way out of my price range. I couldn't believe the clarity and the zoom distance. It also has a anti shake feature that keeps your pictures clear even when you are zooming far away. The 14.1 megapixal gives amazing detail, you can even see a drop of sweat or skin texture when you zoom the image on your computer. The face detection works great. It also has a touch screen that alows you to choose what area you want in focus. It has a intelegent burst mode that can take multiple shots of a moving object or even a fast moving pet so you always get a perfect shot. It also has a motion deblur mode so your moving images will come out clear. The active mode is amazing and I didn't expect to see such a great feature in a point and shoot. This camera also has a built in HD video feature so it is like having 2 cameras in one. It keeps the video steady even if I am walking wile I am recording. I would recommend using your wrist strap so you do not drop it because the camera is heavy for it's small size, so be careful who you hand it to if you want them to take your picture. Since I purchased this camera I usually leave my DSLR and HD Video camera at home. This one does it all in a small package.
