A bridge on a budget.... with no viewfinder...hmm...
Why oh why did they not put in their 12mp cmos sensor from the SX240/260/40/50hs.. after all,it's physically the same size...!!
I think I'd sacrifice a bit of zoom and go for the pocketable SX240/260hs...or go the whole hog for the SX40 or 50hs.

I looked at this camera when I was trying to decide which super zoom to buy, and the lack of viewfinder was the number one deal-breaker for me. The price is very tempting, though, if an "optical" viewfinder isn't something you really want or need.
