and has been 'excused' by others repeatedly. It's a p&s. What more can you expect. You don't understand the engineering. The lens elements are larger so moving them is the inherent problem. Not enough room inside of the small lens...

All wonderful excuses about why Canon has produced what dpreview calls a 'average p&s AF performance. Average p&s performance says many other p&s cameras have better AF performance and clearly cost alot less No excuse for average p&s AF performance on one of the most expensive p&s cameras out there. If you cannot engineer better AF performance don't charge for it. $800 for a very good sensor but little else over the G12 is a rip off.

O.K. So the price will come down. Let's say $700 when a G12 costs $400. Where is the $300 in increased cos/value over the G12?
