So, how's the SX200?

My wife is debating between the SX200 and the Lumix and can't make up her mind. Judging from the samples, she likes the Canon color better, but likes some things better about the new Lumix.

Since the SX200 recently came out, I thought there might be a flurry of activity about it, but I didn't see much, hence this post. I can't give her a lot of advice because I've been shooting dslrs for the past 5 years and these cameras are a far cry from the Nikon 5700 I shot with back in 2003.

So folks, what's the verdict?

Here's what she wants:

small, but not tiny.
Good shots from auto mode.

She's had a Canon G3, G6, and 1100 IS. She thinks the G6 is too big and wants more zoom than the 1100 can give her.

She generally shoots family events and vacation shots, so it's a bit of everything.
