    After a bit of web research this camera is at the top of my list - apart from the memory issues using the memory stick is there any reason why I shouldn't buy this camera ? best price is approx £540

    Thanks

    They are a very good and well respected camera and now that you can get 3rd party memory sticks, things are looking up.
