This the best camera I have had in my life, by far. It is perfect for my situation (young kids) and the only camera I have seen that is fast enough to get the picture before the kids move on to the next distraction. The pictures are beautiful and the form factor is comfortable. For the price, there is nothing even close. If I weren't so cheap, I would have gone Nex-5, but haven't noticed the megapixel difference.
