On the plus side, the Powershot forum has more activity than this one.

That's because there are at least 50+ extant models of Powershots. And Dpreview refuses to separate them into at least two, more relevant, categories.

Also, Canon has been making popular compact cameras for a long time. After some early success (search "coolpix swivel") Nikon concentrated mostly on DSLR and did not have a really competitive model until the P6000 (arguably).

Are you suggesting high end and low end Powershot forums? Probably too late, compact cameras are in decline.

That's exactly what I'm suggesting! Although the SX40/50 are not what I would call "low-end" cameras, they seem to dominate the Powershot Forum with nature & wildlife shots when there is a separate Forum for that.

Anyway, I'll continue to monitor this forum for news of the P8000.

As will I. Definitely interested at this point!
