Yes, it's a super-zoom and for that kind of money, it's a steal.

It looks good value on paper- though,not exactly top of the class with regards image quality. VERY heavy handed noise reduction... at all iso settings.

You're talkin' about a $140 camera. May not be X10 IQ but it's a great starter camera.

I am getting it. It's $179 at B&H and J&R and all over. So for a big zoom, it's the best value around.
