I have now owned my P7000 for almost a year and find it a very useful tool. My other camera's are a Nikon D50 and D90. I was looking for something much lighter and smaller that would take good technical photographs for my engineering practice. The P7000 after making the necessary firmware changes "(v1.2) firmware" has solved most of the outstanding problems. I like being able to update the camera's firmware. While photographing cracks and other defects may not sound exciting it is important when you are trying to explain design and construction issues to clients. The weight and the abilities of the P7000 are just right and camera produces good high quality exposures.

It looks that you got the sensor size of P7100 wrong. It is 1/1.7"—not 1/1.8". You can check it here (under "specifications" tab), for example:
