    If only it didn't start at f/3.3. Sigh. Looks great otherwise.

    Why so many pixels!?!? Stupid! They should make 14 megapix sensors better, higher quality and better in low light.

    Agree 12MP is enough and lens is slowish but pretty good for a travel zoom.

    I haven't been terribly impressed with the sony CMOS sensors as of late. They seem to do good at higher ISOs but are pretty noisy at base ISOs in comparison.
