Small body size (though supplied lens adds bulk)
Useful tilting screen
Builtin digital effects filters are fun and easy to use
Solid feel build, slender body design finds room for handgrip, better 400-shot battery life than predecessor, fun and easily selectable digital effects filters, jack-of-all-trades 18 55mm kit zoom sup
Excellent performance at high ISO sensitivities
As expensive as an entrylevel SLR
No builtin flash
Flash is clip-on rather than built-in, improved user interface could do with being less esoteric still, video isnt Full HD, screen flexibility could be further improved
Lens-heavy design
Hard to use in dark conditions
