This is my third digital camera, and I'm happier with it than either of the other two - I love it. I paid top dollar for its new technology a year ago, and I don't regret a nickel of the money spent.
Things I love: The 3 inch screen! The 7MP quality. The slide show. The excellent quality of the video. Ease of use. I love Sony quality in general - lens, camera body, durability, etc.
Things not so great: Proprietary battery that needs to be kept charged. For this camera, having a spare is a good idea.
Having had two other digital camera, I finally have the things that were 'missing' (even though I didn't know it at first) - 7 and 8MP cameras allow you to zoom and crop and still have great prints. Sony has excellent video, which I'm using three times as much as I did on my other camera. The 1000 ISO combined with the high sensitivity feature allows you to take many shots indoors without flash that I never could have before - museums, restaurants, etc.
Technology has advanced so quickly that Sony now has cameras out that have improvements on this camera, for a lot less money. I would highly recommend any of them. I'm a Sony camera fan for life now.
