    This is my third Sony DSC camera. Until I move up to the majors and get a DSLR, Sony is my pick.
    Pros: Carl Zeiss lens...what more needs to be said about that. HUGE viewing screen, easy to hold and use, excellent color.
    Cons: (probably operator error) Focusing seems to be a little slow and at times will focus on objects in the background.
    All in all a great camera.

    Ive had this camera 6 mos now and the images are excellent. CONS Battery life is short and indoors using flash camera is very slow witch makes for missing a lot of shots. 12X zoom is great.
