This is the same camera that Groupon offered with a 8.5mm prime lens for $200 a few days ago. But this deal has a 5-15mm zoom lens instead, which might be more desirable.
Also, this camera only has a 1/2.3" sensor. That's a fraction of the size of the sensor in most other interchangeable-lens cameras, and even smaller than that in most point-and-shoots. But the camera itself is tiny (for an interchangeable lens camera).
