And then to look at somepictures someone might actually take with this cameravs. charts or studio setups, go to any of these links...






Bottom line...this is not a point & shoot camera, but ifyou have a good knowledge of what you want to do with a cameraand want a fundigicam that can do an awful lot for the price, you should check it out.

Well, I was certainly stop-and-go on this product; but, on paper, it looked too good to be true -- and I guess that is the case. It's too bad, becasue I am looking for something to upgrade my Canon S60: something with wide-angle and RAW. The Leica D-Lux 3 and the Olypus SP-550UZ seemed good contenders, but both seem to fall too far short of the mark in too many dimensions. I sure wish Canon would return to RAW in their top quality compacts. But their removal of RAW has at least got me really thinking outside the big two. I will not get another Canon (of any sort) until they stop playing the "average consumer" game. Meanwhile, I guess I'll keep looking in the dSLR market: wait to see what the E-410 and E-510s are like, and, of course, I am still tempted by the Pentax K10D.

You have goodphotos. I have had my SP-550 for one week, and like the photos and ease of use.

Have you looked at the Fujis ?

The only other options I see with both wide angle AND RAW:
Fuji S6000fd
Fuji S9100
Panasonic DMC-LX2 (similar to the Leica D-Lux 3)
