joe6pack: Why does the lens says ULTRASONIC?
Let's hope this sorts out Canon's slow and sometimes inaccurate focus issues of late...
Wye Photography: Cynical me says this is a ploy to keep Canon users hanging on and looking elsewhere.
Well - I don't agree either. If the competition had a camera similar to this (Compact, large sensor, decent zoom) - you think this promise would make people not look at the competition??
Helmut Eder: Well - for me the smaller size is more important than a viewfinder - I'm glad they went this way.
Well sorry - I have to disagree. Had a DSLR, so I know what it's like to have a viewfinder. Been using my Pana TZ40 lately mostly (which is why this new Canon looks like a great upgrade). The TZ40 doesn't have a viewfinder. Never missed it. Everyone's different. Personally I think having an optional one will satisfy more people.
mpgxsvcd: I actually love this camera concept. 25x is the max zoom I think you should strive for. Too bad they are just teasing us with it. This might have actually got me to go back to Canon if it wasn't Vaporware.
Vaporware isn't usually demo'd at an expo though...
Well - for me the smaller size is more important than a viewfinder - I'm glad they went this way.
