I have just seen this and to be honest, I don't get it. 8mp 7 x optical zoom All the usual point and shoot features (including manual mode) that we have come to expect from the Powershot range. BUT Looking online, the best prices seem to be just under £900. This is more than a 300D which although only being 6mp, still looks to be a better camera on paper. So do Canon really expect to sell these against the 300D or have they missed the point OR are they counting on those who must have the maximum number of megapixels buying it for that reason alone?
