Great camera.

Moved from the SX20IS through the Nikon P500 to the Canon SX40HS. The advance in image quality is pretty amazing, and I love the long zoom and the 1.5-2x digital tel-extender. Against all odds, it works. Going on 3 frames per second with a fast (class 10) SD card. Great for landscapes, great for wildlife, great for macro. Love it!

Problems:

I do like the macro mode on the Nikon P500 better, but I can live with the Canon's macro as a trade off for the added image quality.
