Audley, Not sure why you haven't mentioned the Sony DSC-HX9V as a main competitor to this camera. Any reason why ?
Hi Lyndon, the main reason I didn't mention the HX9V as a direct competitor is that I'd consider it to be more of a travel compact than a premium compact, and I'd therefore be more inclined to group it in the company of the Panasonic Lumix FT3, Nikon S9100, Canon SX220 HS and suchlike. Also, the HX9V lacks the full compliment of PASM shooting controls. It's still a great camera though. Hope that helps.
