Canon is in REVERSE!!!

20x zoom, and f2.8-f5.7.

Pathetic. The S2/S3/S5 were f3.5 on the long end - a MAJOR advantage now lost. The competition is f4.5 at the long end. F3.5 was already too slow and now we've lost 1 1/3 stops to that!

Someone needs to quickly profile the range to see where the new lens changes from f-stop to f-stop so we know just what has been lost. I've asked the DPReview staff to do this in their reviews, so maybe they'll do it eventually.
