P72 is good but not the best.And if u decide for p8,buy hather minolta f200 instead it -much better for the same price.

When zoomed and in low light conditions its automatic fails, I think.F.E.:it sets iso100, f10 and 1/30 and show shake warning instead iso200 f5,6 and f.e. f1/80.And the indoor pictures are poor -colors dont match(red is the worst-its orange)and there is big bad-looking orange shadow on the left side with inddor+flash.All the pictures are very noisy even with iso100.I found out that i need camera with manual exposure.So Im going to sell sony and buy F200 or olympus c740, I will see.

I have the P7/P9 and they have a similar problem with noise. I had an Olympus 3020. Id recommend it instead. Had no problems with it at all! And it has manual also.
