2 out of 5 eggs

Pros: i bought from dell.com but just want to share my experience with you guys here as well it is a great little camera i dont want to bash it it anyway but i had it for 2 weeks and it takes great photos but they are blurry and soft edges i think sony needs to reduce their Noise Reduction Ability because it is too much that it smears the details another thing is that in the bright photos for example,in the tree branches highlights, if zoomed in a little you will notice a lot of "CA" = Chromatic Abberation, Purple lightning like color around tree branches which means the wide angle lens is not high quality it is just normal standard quality lens, because sony markets this as professional quality lens , but it certainly not a pro quality lens just their marketing hype.
ok now one great feture is that in low light depending on the scence it take 6 picture and combines them for great quality
but still you get CA and soft pictures because BIONZ chip process it that way probably..

Cons: i returned it and got canon s95, what a difference it is amazingly sharp pictures comparable to DSLR it also has auto scene detection mode you can also take RAW pics as well. the lens is f2.0 even faster than this sony wx5.
