The german has no spelling errors. It is correct.

Thanks for pointing this out! But you are wrong.

I just spoke with a friend (german) and he said that Megapixeln (with an "n" at the end) is absolutely correct because there is the word "mit" before, so Megapixel in this case correctly has an "n" at the end.

I also did a google research and you will see thousands of german websites that also spell "Megapixeln" the same way.

For example: http://www.gizmodo.de/2008/03/05/sony_cybershot_mit_136_megapixeln.html

There should be a colon before "handlich"

No, he said a colon before the word "handlich" would muck the sentence structure.
So as for the german, grammar is ok.

Also, it states 16 MP, while all other bodies state either "ca." (= aprox.) xx MP or > a MP count with 1 decimal position (10,1 MP etc.).

I agree with you on this, but if you look at other Canon camera specs they do state flat and round MP count....

But I still think it is a fake, it sounds too good to me.
