Re: Wait for P7700 or get Canon G12

The problem is in the UK and I believe also in Europe you are paying a hefty premium over the US price for a slightly larger sensor and a lot of buttons. It would seem better to get a far cheaper longer reach 1/2.3" camera now that the viewfinder has gone. I think the Panasonic FZ200 f2.8 even at its current price looks a much more versatile option especially with non US pricing of the P7700. The fact that Nikon had to use a polariser on its one shot including the sky in its sample images does not bode well.

I agree, I'd like a viewfinder, but like the longer reach of the Nikon. My thinking is that the Canon has been out for a couple of years so the bugs must have been ironed out, while the Nikon would be wet behind the years. And the Canon is getting cheaper. What would you do? Possibly newer technology or tried and true? Lepewhi
