    I have owned this camera now for over a year and enjoy its portability. I own two SLRs and even though they provide excellent shots, sometimes they can get heavy and awkward in situations. This is a great "in the pocket" camera for those unexpected shots without lugging around the "big bag".

    Purchased this camera last week dispite reading some bad reviews saying the images were very noisey. The reviews were correct terrible noise above iso 100 especially when using 10X zoom indoors it kicks the iso up to 400&above using flash terrable results. I have gotten better with a 2mp camera. The only way to get acceptable images is to set the iso to 80 or 100 in the menu or shoot outdoors with sun all the time. I dont understand how LEICA would allow there lens to be in such a poor preforming camera?

    Amazing Features, Perfect size and GREAT ultra zoom and image stabilization!

    This camera IS the closest camera to the ideal "perfect" camera! I think the Kodak I had took much better macros, but maybe thats because of the weak flash it had. Pana's macros indoors aren't too good, but I can live with that.
