I love this new toy!! my only problem is that there weren't any instructions. I'm not sure what a few of the parts are for. Takes great pictures and is small enought to toss in my purse in case I run into a photo opportunity.
When using the tripod with the lens on, its hard to focus. Have to hold down the tripod to focus & then sat it back down to shoot (awkward). Tripod to unstable (maybe I'll use a heavy duty tripod). I final took the camera off the tripod & took pictures.
Quality of picture: it took 10 shots before I got a decent photo. Photo is still grainy & not very sharp. Photos taken < than 15 feet is better than over 15 feet. I wouldn't print these photos.
