And if you get it before the price goes back up, you'll have a great buy.

    Image stabilization works well, but is noisy.


    Posted by a reviewer on Amazon

    Auto-focus does tend to hunt, but for macros one should use manual focus unless tracking a moving object like a bug.


    Posted by a reviewer on Amazon

    The autofocus is terrible and noisy (that's what mf is for though) but the image quality is great.


    Posted by a reviewer on Amazon

    The stabilization was very accurate and the image sharp and stable even though there has been conditions where the camera was not able to stay steady.

    Posted by a reviewer on Amazon

    The only reason i gave it four stars is because it makes a weird noise when it's turned on.
