Pros Excellent performance in a zoom lens. For a this retired ex-pro, it offers the user-controlled features I want for creative photography plus the size and weight acceptable for a 75-year-old to take traveling through airports.
Cons No accessory flash shoe. Plasticky feel.
Summary Very happy with this choice. Have used AUTO-PICT setting more than I expected. It is very intuitive in choosing the right automatic mode even in this bright snowy weather we're having right now. The face recognition feature is of questionable merit to me, but I'm not a people photographer. So it's an annoyance that can, fortunately, be turned off. The grip is comfortable and the controls are easy. Settings that allow selective focus are important to me and these are welcomed. And simple. Okay, there are some compromises with telephoto instead of interchangeable lenses, but with the over-the-range quality of this lens, it's not too much of a problem.
Pros Light , Small footprint , Good Picture Quality
Cons None its really fool proof
Summary Excellent Buy - more than most need
