I bought this camera as a back up to my Canon EOS 400D, which itself is very fine. I am delighted with the picture quality; I feel that it gives nothing away to the Canon in terms of the image quality. I have taken 300-400 pictures, and am still getting used to the menu system.
The picture quality is such that I would not hesitate to use it as my camera of first choice. My only slight reservation is the shortness of the telezoom, but I knew this when I bought the camera.
I think that anyone looking for a serious compact digital camera, should look very seriously at this model. Buy with confidence.
