OK, after salivating all through the holiday season, I've taken the plunge. Everything I've read about this little puppy says it's perfect for me: great zoom (10x optical!) with awesome stabilization, lots of options & upgrades, & great price. I'm just a "vacation" photographer, so the 3.2MP should be just right for me!
I'm getting mine from the good folks @ Beach Camera – same as my last camera four years ago! I got a couple extra compact flash cards & a Canon case from Amazon – so watch out if you've got vacation plans with me anytime soon!
