Time will tell...

My S30 had a close encounter of the pavement kind a week ago. I dropped it off to see how much a repair would cost. I should know soon.

There is always the possibility that the new sensor will have lower noise and better sensitivity, but I'll bet it is the same 1/1.8" unit that everyone else is using. It will be interesting to see if Phil has had one for a while and is just under embargo.

Still 4.9 at the long end (So still poor AF at full zoom) and still
with the Sxx body's only weak link - the lens cover, I bet the
multicontroller is the same too..

Add to that the usual noise increase when more pixels are crammed
in (witness the C5050) and you have a perfect reason for grabbing
an S30 while they're being blown out cheap..

I still think this camera looks cooler in Silver ..
