I visited the devil last night, ala Best Buy. And noticed that the S70 was no longer being sold, so I asked why. The "camera guy" said that the model was discontinued and that a replacement was on the way. He said he had no idea when it would come in, he only knew that it would not be this week.

Does anyone think that S80 is right around the corner, or would canon not release two similar version so close to each other and without a big opening (example the PMA)?
Any info would be greatly appreciated!

Thanks

You'd better not be teasing. I'm running out of time fast and need to get something.

Same here :P

BTW do you think the S75 or S80 will be $499 or more?

That would be a good guess.

Canon doesn't want the S80 to compete with the Rebel XT so it may have 7MP. 2.0" LCD 134,000 pixels is possible too. Scene modes, DIGIC II and unlimited VGA movies arecertainly a yes. Canon would want to pack more features into a same/smaller body so SDs are possible as well.
