    Good point and shoot with a min of 12x optical zoom and stabilization. Will be used for sporting event and concert. Prefer it not be as large or expensive as a DSLR.

    Thanks!

    I played with it at the store...

    Viewfinder is electronic and kind of really sucks. LCD sucks even worse.

    Couldn't really determine any kind of image quality with a half second preview on that shitty screen.
