An interesting little camera- it has its flaws,but maybe not so much for the "point and shooter".
The basic AF options seem strange- this can only hinder a camera with such a large zoom- and the omission of Manual and semi-auto modes might irk some (like me...!).
I personally am not a fan of AA usage- though in my experience,cameras that use 4 at least tend to have decent battery life.
On the plus side, the lens seems to perform surprisingly well- both at full zoom and at the impressively wide angle end. The output seems to be geared for "straight out of the camera" images- and in that regard it looks to be doing a good job, especially given its price.
One point of note- I fear you have the wrong spec sheet listed for this camera...!
