This is the lowest price I've found for this camera, which I believe is being replaced by a newer model. Most other places have it for around $300. Reviews are pretty excellent.
Poor optical zoom and so-so video. But the bright lens/large sensor combination make it great for stills in low light settings. And if you like to isolate your subject from the background, the aperture settings on this camera are about the best you're going to get in this price range. It can also capture in RAW mode if you're into that sort of thing.
