All I did was crop 4Mp from the middle, resize what I'd cropped to that size and sharpen..

No it's not a Raw shot 5D with an L lens on in your pocket but it's on a par with the A620 at pixel level !! (better than any current panasonic or the Fuji F50 FD) !! so you're getting 5Mp's worth more of A620 quality and to me, that's a worthwhile upgrade before the screen and lens are taken into consideration ..

I've tried soft sharpening and sharpening in photoshop but didn't gain much so far so the camera, like most Canons and Fujis is doing a great job at sharpening (I didn't think the A620 could be improved on much by soft mode and PP) - the Dynamic range seems good too, even by 7Mp micro-CCD standards, let alone 12Mp ! ..

I feel this cam has kept the fine tradition of the A600 series IQ wise (there isn't a Dud in the bunch) and upped the Ante with lens and IS whilst keeping the price the same as the A620 at launch and less than the A640 was ..
