iam thinking about buying one of these cameras for an everyday use. now take away the price and the fact that the canon has more optical zoom. witch camera produses better image quality (lowlight and normal light) outside and inside. also what about the Video quality? I was going to buy a bridging camera like a canon G1x or a compact camera with interchangeable lenses like the nex7 but the price just put me off. so what do you guys think? I like to use them in and outdoors. taking shots when traveling panorama, animals, people... a bit all around.
