Canon PowerShot SD700 IS (Digital IXUS 800 IS / IXY Digital 800 IS) review

This was "our" second digital camera. Used as backup on trips and whenever I'm too lazy to use SLR. Good things: super build, OK LCD, very good pictures. Focus fast and accurate, adaptive used most of the time as it does a very good job.
Battery life very good.
Recommend use of forced-centre focus for anything tricky.
Oh yes, image stabilization works.

Problems:

No diopter in viewfinder, therefore must wear glasses to use the camera. LCD can be hard to see in sunlight. Battery warning very difficult to see on startup.
