Thinking of upgrading from S2is to SX10/SX1
May 30, 2009

I'm wondering whether to finally move on from my trusty S2is to one of the new models and have questions about the zoom and about picture quality between the old and the new.

How much - really - is the difference between 12x and 20x ? Can someone post a couple of shots of something taken at those zooms please ? 12x is 430mm equivalent.

Will there be a noticeable difference in picture quality between the 5mp S2is and the 10mp SX1/SX10 when I'm viewing pictures on the computer monitor zoomed out to fit the whole picture on the screen ?

How about when zoomed in to 100% ?

How about printed at 6x4 or 8x10 ?

Thanks gurus
