I bought this camera and its a good camera with good features. But it also has its fair share of flaws. The min shutter speed is 30 secs, very good for a point and shoot but min aperture is only f/8, leaving very small room for creative night shooting. Long exposure photography more than 3 seconds is virtually impossible, it's always overexposed, I always take my ND filter with me at night. It has EV dial but strangely it doesn't work in M mode!!! It has a slow lens but the Superior auto mode is very impressive and makes up for it. I bought this as a smaller, lighter substitute for my Canon 60D and my impression is lukewarm. Good point-and-shoot (travel) camera but not for enthusiast photographers like me.
