tlinn: Folks can disagree about features and performance—what it should and should not be able to do. For me, this conversation cannot be divorced from price. At $500, this camera would be great. At $800, I think it offers such low value per dollar that I find it laughable. There are too many alternatives that offer more for less.

AGREED COMPLETELY.

chadley_chad: I know the price will go down, but in the first place, £429 for a P&S ... not a chance! (and certainly not enough to make me want to upgrade from my S95; however much I'd like 24mm and a bit more zoom!)

If it doesn't come down soon then I see no reason not to plump for an EP-1 with 18-55mm for the £289 you can now buy them for ... or go the whole hog and get a twin lens NEX-C3 for £100 more. Sure, we have the size issue, but at £429, I can cope with a bigger bulge in my pocket (i.e. plump for the NEX)

My advice - do what I did and buy an S95 for £200 on eBay!

Or get the Nikon P300 for $249 at amazon. Nikon/Amazon just reduced the price... most likely due to the upcoming release Canon low-liters like the S100 this October (already available for pre-order at Amazon).

jmmgarza: Can you shoot video of an indoor event... like a art opening. That is typical of where I would take such a camera.

I bring an actual HD camcorder for that. Why demean your art opening (or an event that interests you) w/ such a small sensor cam? Even the cheapest/smallest dedicated HD cam trumps any compact point 'n shoot HD recorder.
