I just stumbled on this from the NYTimes site.

Fantastic!!!

… "a feature list in search of a camera" … from what I've heard and read, that describes quite a few C***n's, not just the SX1.

Thanks for posting that link!

Interesting article, albeit pretty unfair to Canon. The author really can't compare the D5K to canon's super zoom point and shoot. that would be like comparing the new 500D (Rebel T-something or other) to Nikons (i think) P90.

I guess the new Canon is still larger than the D40 or D5K, but the article makes it sound like Canon doesn't have a sensor that could even come close to competing with the D5K. If I was in charge of Canon's marketing and PR people, there would be some things being thrown around our office right now!

>albeit pretty unfair to Canon

Yes, I'd agree with that. I suppose the original concept for the article was to show the merging margins between the smaller DSLR and the larger P&S. From that respect the P&S would always be expected to win on features and die on image quality, which is pretty much what the reviewer said - you can't change the laws of physics. I might have been fairer though if they had reviewed offerings from the same manufacturer. We'd be spitting nails right now if they reversed the comparison and tried to compare a Coolpix to a Digital Rebel.
