Handled one today because QVC sent it instead of the Q that I ordered. Its pretty solid, the shutter button is duplicated in the portrait and horizontal modes along with the zoom lever. It also has two tripod screw attachments - the standard one and one at the opposite end from the portrait format button. Cover for the battery and SD card is far more study than the one on my daughters RS1000 too.

Is the IQ as bad as that of the Optio WG-2? I'm reviewing it right now and apart from that, it's really quite a good camera. I think its lens may be the main thing holding it back.

I wouldn't touch a compact camera with only 720p with a ten foot pole when there are compact cameras out there with 1080p60. I have the VS20 and I felt like throwing it at the head of QVC for sending me it instead of the Pentax Q.
