I bought this camera earlier this year and love it. Only downside is that the aperture range isn't the best in its class, probably the worst, and you have to stitch photos in the software that comes with it to make panorama shots, unlike the sony where you can just pan the camera and it does it itself. But the most important part of a camera is the picture and the sx260 gets the top marks vs comparable sony, panasonic, and nikon camera's consistently.
