Re: Went for the A650 after All

The IS in the A cams is Definately worth it - the 6X zoom is also - it was the G7 where I found the IS was making up for the awful handling and lack of grip wheras the A650 like the 610 has a deep grip and plenty of thumb space......

PET HATE No1 is the STUPID way canon put the damn SD card in with the batteries - it was on the side in the A610/620 and S3-IS but the A630, 640, 650 and S5-IS have it down under where the batteries fall out and you have to wrestle with the damn AA battery door every time - as I've said countless times, canon only listen to the hamsters in their heads - it's fine down there with a Li_Ion cam but NOT in an AA cam Canon !!

Anyway, at least they gave it the G7 lens and not some inferior optic, left in the Swivelly screen, put in the superb Auto-Chimp mode (zoomed in portion shown) and the price is the same I paid for the A620 ...... Like the G7, the lens is sharp edge to edge, end to end wide open - you gotta love these 35mm startpoint Compact lenses
