jcburke: Anybody who needs GPS data for all pictures should just cut back on the drug prescriptions so they can recall where the heck they were when they pressed the shutter. I mean, really, go buy a point-and-shoot camera with GPS instead; the rest of us know where we were and what we shot.
I may make an exception for National Geographic photogs (who wouldn't be buying this camera anyway for other reasons), but otherwise GPS is a crutch for amateurs and has nothing to do with core imagery and creative photography. If it is your discerning feature between two cameras, then you are not a photographer, you're a map freak.

Pre GPS I took shots in many countries and at best had a vague idea where they were shot some years later. When I started posting shots to Panoramio and attempted to map them with Google I spent hours trying to be precise by using Google Maps and streetview. GPS would have saved me considerable time.
