Help needed - Urgent!

So, so sorry for the long silence (I seem to say that every time I reappear after a long absence). I've been busy (Who isn't?). The thing is, I've had a lot of reading to do (So do iFos and Ayumi, but they seem to be okay).

Anyway, I've finally zoomed in on a camera which fulfills most of my wishes (plus, it's also within my financial means. Well, not quite, but that's another story). So, I'd be in deep gratitude if any of the other bloggers could give some comments to my potential 'wife' (as Mynn affectionately calls his DSLR).

Presenting to you, the Casio Exilim EX Z60 (clap clap)

Oh, by the way, here are the specs (Just in case)

I'm really hoping for some feedback as this seems my only viable option (the other one I had my eye on was the Canon Digital Ixus 60 a.k.a SD60, but it was a bit pricey at RM1300. Mom scowled when she heard the price).

p.s. If you're wondering why on earth did I include brackets after each sentence, it's just simply because I've nothing better to do (A pathetic excuse, I know. Oh shoot. I've done it again)
