cthart: Will this new lens autofocus with a Nikon TC17 or TC20 on any of the Nikon DX format cameras? I'm wanting to take some pictures of birds!

Anyone know if a DX camera can autofocus at F8 for example?

deep7: Funny, though understandable, how so many complain about the fixed screen. I have a G1X and would much prefer NOT to have the annoying, fiddly swivel LCD!
For a while I used an Olympus EP1 with a fixed screen and found it quite useable when viewed at an angle (ground shots, overhead shots etc.). I suggest G-series fans wait until you actually get to try one before you panic too much.

I'm happy enough with my G1X but wonder if Canon will ever have the balls to make something a bit more serious - better viewfinder, better close-focus implementation, fewer gimmicks (wink detection??!! etc.). It would help to abandon the G compact shape and go for something lower and wider...

Are there any cameras which fall in this category: "better viewfinder, better close-focus implementation, fewer gimmicks"?

Optical Viewfinder. Yes, I use it a lot. Even on my old Canon Powershot A720IS that I still use a bit (because it is so light and small).

But a good EVF might be OK too.

OVF?

I take mostly pictures of:
* our son
* buildings
* trains
* landscape scenes
* holiday snaps

The things I like about my (Nikon) DSLR that I'd like to retain in a compact:
* shallow DoF with my 35/1.8 lens
* it's "fast" (startup time, shutter lag, multiple shots per second, etc)
* external flash (increases battery life of in-camera battery, bounce flash for more natural lighting)

The things I don't like:
* bulk (weight, size)
* changing lenses

So what would you recommend instead? I'm a DSLR owner wanting something much smaller.
