    Purchased online sight-unseen. Was shocked at how small this camera is. Online reviewers keep comparing it to much larger cameras. Am totally blown-away by the superb images… under practically any lighting condition. Have never seen a tiny camera deliver such good results. Didn’t intend for this to replace my other cameras but since it takes such an awesome picture and can be easily carried anywhere, the 1020 is quickly becoming my main ‘candid’ camera.
