Yeah, Canon got rid of Superfine, and there was a lot of bitching, moaning, and complaining - but I saw several people post that they reenabled it with CHDK, took a bunch of test shots, and...couldn't tell the slightest difference. Assumably they found a clever way to implement the jpg encoding algorithm in a way that led to smaller files without giving up anything.
