I will say the above pic of the Breitling is very good compared to some of the others.
I'd say you've summed it up pretty well. It is capable of taking superb shots close up and colour wise it reproduces very similar to what you see (without tinkering with settings) sometimes when taking shots of things further away, in dodgy lighting or with a moving hand it can take a few shots to get the one you want. This camera has a bit of a steeper learning curve for those who are just used to pointing and shooting but it's not a bad camera, just takes time to get used to it... I'm still getting there
