This is the best camera I have ever purchased. It was not a cheap investment, however this camera has never disappointed. The lens that comes with the camera is great as well as I purchased the father lens for this camera. It is not too heavy of a camera to carry around and it's performance is one of the best. I always get a nice clear picture. The options on the camera are great. I can use this at my kid's sports games, to take nice family photos and even do special options. I like the auto features to the manual ones. Image Quality The pixels are great on this camera, my photos always come out clear. Even when zooming in and out after the picture is taken my photos always look clear. Performance This is a camera I can count on. It has a quick shutter to allow quick photo takes. Ease of Use Very easy to use even with all the different options it offers. Durability I have never had any problem with my camera even with it being around two young children. Battery Life I think the battery life is great on this camera. I feel like I get many pictures taken before the battery even gets half way down. Portability Very easy to carry around and take places. It is not too bulky but a decent size.
