Canon PowerShot SX10 IS review

I purchased this camera one week ago. I currently own a PowerShot Pro1 that I have used constantly since early 2005. I didn't want to upgrade to an SLR because of the weight of the camera & lenses. We like walking.
I love the 20 optical zoom on the SX10 IS and it is light weight. I love the image stabilizing which I didn't have before. So far I am happy with the image quality, but a little grainy in low light.

Problems:

I am disappointed with the manual focus wheel which is very fiddly and it's easy to press the wheel to get other options up which you don't want. I also don't like the fact that the flash doesn't pop up automatically. You have to manually raise the flash. And unfortunatley it has trouble focusing in low lights which is a fault of my current camera. I know I will get used to every thing but I feel for the money I have spent it could have had a better system for the flash and manual focus.
