Bought this the last time it was on Woot. One thing to note that could be a pro or con depending on your perspective is that the full auto mode messes with vibrance. Grass will be greener, the sky bluer, your clothes etc. brighter/richer. Manual and Program modes seem to leave it alone.
berrybuzz, in M and P modes I see focus options of Center, Face Priority, and Multi-Zone. You can half depress the button to focus on one object, point at something closer/farther away, and snap the pic, but I don't see a manual override. This caused me some trouble at the zoo, where I took a lot of pictures of fences.
