Just wanted to say thanks to everyone. I've lurked here for awhile and finally bought a Canon S3 IS this week. I'm still learning the menu's etc since this is only my second digicam I've purchased and my third overall. The last was an Olympus D460z. I have a Sony Cybershot 3.2mp that was given to me a couple of months ago that really spiked my interest in purchasing one with a longer zoom.
anyways.... thanks for all the sharing of info ! I hope to get some good shots out of my new Canon. It was a tough choice on the purchase (I'm indecisive by nature anyway)
