peevee1: According to your posted specs they dropped digital zoom. Is this true?
As others have said, the single most useless feature on a camera is digital zoom. It simply isn't needed. What a digital zoom does is CROP the picture. If you want digital zoom, open the picture in your favorite image editing software and crop it there. Voilá, digital zoom.
Robert Newman: Nice but expensive camera. I think I would opt for the new Canon 18mp machine over this however. Actually, I still use my Mamiya RZ67 and my 4x5 Sinar P along with an Epson 700 scanner for a variety of work. I don't get the dynamic range of a good digital SLR and clearly there is some quality lost in going from analog film to digital for final printing, but there is plenty of resolution and for studio or architectural shots, there are times when I prefer this approach. It forces me to compose more carefully and meter more intelligently than I might if I just used a DSLR. My main camera is a Canon 5D2, but like all tools it has limitations and when I have time and a specific application for medium or large format images, film can still make sense.
@rikimoto - is there anything about "My main camera is a Canon 5D2" you fail to understand?
