Casio has made a bold attempt to produce something a little different with this model, and it is likely to please those photographers who want a camera for casual use.

This is a capable camera, but with limited scope. Those who demand a lot from such a model should look elsewhere.

    I have this camera and I agree 100% with your review. I just would have emphasized the difficulty, at times impossibility, of focusing with the LCD screen on certain lighting conditions. The outside viewer is really a most.

    Also, I´m not sure abot the quality of the 14- 42 mm lens, made in China since have not had opportunity to test it per se. For photos requiring this range, I prefer the Lumix DMC-ZS5 with its excellent Elmar lens by Leica.
    I find myself using the telephoto 45-200 made in Japan regularly and would like to see a review of both lendses. Thank you
