I bought this for Christmas and got a free incredible speaker for my iPod and iPad. The images are excellent at 20.3 megapixels and it's been a long time since I had a SLR in my hand. Now, I'm shooting away in town and in Disneyland! Hoping to get good shots of the spectacular fireworks this countdown! Before that though, I'll have to figure out how to take one without the lugging the tripod around!
One big reason why I chose it is because I like the grip of the camera. I did try out Sony NEX C3 (since my cousin has it, didn't like the feel of it as well as the low light LCD screen) and Panasonic GF3 (which almost fell off my hand!). NX200 feels good and the light weight is another boon. No regret so far!
