Re: Standardized rechargeable Li-Ion AA?

Just one small example as to why people tend to like the AAs. My old S2 and SX10 have 4- AA cells. The new SX40 uses a very expensive proprietary battery. Camera bulk has gone up with the newest model.

Now certainly the newer thin packs are needed for the pocket P&S cams but not so much for SZs and DSLRs. It really isn't a deal breaker for me. Horses for courses.
