CNET Editors' Rating

The Good 12X zoom; effective image stabilization; manual controls; generally decent image quality; versatile burst modes.

The Bad Clumsy lens-hood design; low-res movie mode; coarse, small EVF.

The Bottom Line An SLR alternative with a stabilized 12X zoom lens that both enthusiasts and casual photographers can appreciate.

Control placement is sometimes quirky but easy to get used to.
