It is compact.. a SUPER ZOOM , 24 x and .. due to the LEICA lens; razor sharp!
Not always I wanted to go photo hunting with my normal Canon gear.. sometimes we like to hunt light
The little bugger is RAZOR sharp.. has a good VC/IS (image stabilizer) and lots of options
Super in MACRO to
above 400 ISO I find it useless
