thank you for your very kind words of appreciation!
The camera you mentioned is a compact working horse of mine, still serving me for several years now, and doing a decenty good job for all kinds of moderate macro photography of flowers and insects particularly on long hiking trips because of its compact size and light weight, its fast autofocus, and the long depth of field of short focal length optics on small chip sizes. But, of course, it could never be taken into serios consideration for any kind of high resolution landscape photography, or for stalking birds with a tele. There it could never keep up with a high end dSLR such as Canon 5D. At moderate macro photography, however, a good compact model like the mentioned one might deliver superior results with much less effort compared to a full size dSLR.
