Thanks.  Canon didn't contact me - but there's a reason for that (they're apparently still very annoyed with me for leaking some specs on a PowerShot years ago... not that I was employed with them at the time).

I'm right on the fence with this camera.  I think it's slightly more versatile than the Mk 1 and would offer some great felexibility in low light with superb image quality with a fixed lens, including a great Macro lens.  But there are some things I don't like about it (LCD, 24mm, noise-reduction algorithm etc).  The links to samples that were posted here on the forum in the wee hours this morning really impress me.

Still weighing up whether to buy or not.  I would normally be able to decide in an instant... which makes me think that the reasons for upgrading are not necessarily compelling enough yet. But I would recommend it to others based on what I see now.
