I'm currently looking into this camera. I'm no professional photographer but would like a little more control and better PQ than a compact. It seems this camera is targeted for just my type right? *Update: I picked one up during my lunch today. If you've never held one you'd be surprised at how small it is. Even the smallest dslr is gigantaum next to it. Size was a factor in my decision and I think the large lens gives it a nice place to hold it steady. With the 16mm lens on it should fit snuggly in a pants pocket.
