It does appear to be insanely similar to the P850... which isn't a problem for me, that means I don't have to regret buying my P850, but still, it does seem like an awfully small improvement, hardly worth a new model.

I knew as soon as Costco and others started down pricing the P850 that a new "upgrade" was on the way! Kinda reminds me of the "upgrade" from the DX6490 to the DX7590! Well I'll have to wait a little while longer to get my camera with the focus ring ala- the P880 with the 8+Mp's and a 12X + zoom! Sigh!!!! I seem to be always waiting!
