Excellent lens/ sensor and picture quality (given reasonable lighting).
Not too heavy (sold my Nikon SLR camera and lenses as a result).
Ease of operation.
Excellent zoom range and large aperture.
Robust and very reliable.
EVF and LCD monitor, with auto-switching.
Good for multi-shots and for flash photography.
Good battery life.
Still rather heavy for my travelling (I use mainly Casio EX-100/100F), but then it is the result of having a relatively large sensor.
Due to the EVF, LCD movement is not as flexible as that in Casio EX-100/100F.
Very happy as I got it for HK$4000 in MK and have used it for over a year without any trouble. Google search for "youpic pop88123" to see some photos.
