I think I'm going to pick this up. I wanted a carry along with a decent zoom. I was curious if anyone had one, and if so, your thoughts on it. With a 2g memory stick it comes to a little over $500. Well actually the best I found was $515.94. http://www.steves-digicams.com/2006_reviews/h5.html

THESE KINDA CAMERA are what the future of digital photograghy.Im 49 years old and have been an amature photogragher since 9th grade.im a die hard SLR guy.ive almost jumped to the dslr but these all in one cameras off so sarn much for the money it rediculaos.some insane fast 36mm-450mm or so.5-8 mp..3 inch lcd screen? see how much you gotta spend for a 3 inch lcd monitor on a dslr?if you can find one that big.
DSLRs have advantages no doubt fast shetter reaction time first.other than that they are wofully lacking for their high prices.
if you want a real bargan get a kodak 850 .300 bucks and you get a great fast 36mm-420mm lens.a 2 1/2 inch lcd.IS.REDICULOUS.INSANE!

Am I the only one who rarely uses the LCD on the back of my dSLR?

I use it to format cards, change ISO/WB and sometimes I will glance at a shot to see if I have blown something if I am curious at that time, otherwise I wait until I have the pics pulled off the card as I would with processing film. If I could change ISO/WB and format cards without it, I wouldn't even use it!

I have a Canon FT-b, AE-1program, A-80 and now the Sony. I also had a Fuji but lost it. I like the SLR as well, but I KNOW I won't lug around all the lenses. All I do any more is carry it a small camera for the fun of it.
On the digitals the smallest memory I'd buy is a gig. When shooting I just load the card up and delete when editing.
I only bought this Sony for the zoom. My kids and their kids are playing sports.
