The reason I ask is because based on its specifications, it seems to be good compact and lightweight camera for travel and scenic shots.
I have never owned one but tried a few times in the past when it still was available from its manufacture. It's been said the optical quality was as good as a SLR lens, but I thought the distortion as a 28mm lens was a bit too much. It's just my personal taste, though.

If you're interested in it, go try it to see if you like it or not. It's certainly better than any compact digital P&S.
