$1000 =\, but I looked up the lens that is on it, "Carl Ziess" turns out they make the best lens's in the world and that size of lens by itself is around 700 bucks. It's insane how good of a camera this is, I have a feeling it's going to corner the market in fixed lens camera's. It doesn't do macro but you can get an adapter for it that will allow it to do so, I haven't read one bad review about this thing. I think I am going to get it (if I can)

I want to get a new camera in the next few months so really appreciate your opinion. The store I was at didn't even have 10+ megapixels, so I just learned that I need to do my homework.

I have camera envy everytime I come here! Or anyone else's site w/ a rock'n good camera.

I won't even tell you what mine is, You would fall on the floor LOL, pee your pants and never get up!!

Our first digital camera was an older Sony with a Zeiss lens. My husband bought it for the lens, too.

(I am still laughing at CameraDawktor's comment.)

Don't know about all that specs. I just noticed only a 5x optical zoom. That is not that good. If i wanted to be a photographer I'd get me one with 12x optical zoom!

Actually it's a 5x optical with a 15x zoom ;)
