Personaly, I think this is the perfect camera for me. After checking out the FX150 specs, it appears that it is the better camera, but at what cost? I don't care to learn a new completely new camera (read: different brand) and at times, I may only have a few seconds to capture that perfect shot that might be lost because of old habits. Not only that, I don't care to replace my speedlite flash. This should be a huge step up from my current SX10 IS. I'm a huge NASCAR fan and love to travel so that 35X will come in very handy. Not only that, I'm about sick of that 640x480 video. And 10fps full res burst... OH YEAH!
