I use this camera for everything: art photography, portraits, landscapes, HDR, and point-and-shoot family shots. Its really done everything I’ve asked of it without fuss and with good quality. I like that I can dive into the manual settings and get exactly the shot I want, then turn the mode dial to "AUTO" and hand the camera to my wife or kids and know that they’ll get reasonably good photos. The image quality is simply outstanding. The menu system is logical and easy to use; if you know about photography you can bend the camera to your will easily.
