My Review 

I have been using the small point and shoot digitals, so this is my first venture into this type of camera. I can only say from my very novice experience that it has been giving me unbelievable pictures. I took a few pictures of the house lightings during Christmas, and they are great. I am looking to purchase a zoom lens for this camera so I can capture wildlife better. Are there any suggestions on what to get? I highly recommend this camera for beginners from my perspective. I would give it a rating of 4.5.
