Since Canon didn't upgrade their A series with any model retaining a viewfinder, I'm looking for a new A720. I can't seem to find one at a reasonable price anywhere.

Adorama has "Canon Refurbished" A720s in stock and I'm wondering if anyone has experience with these refurbished models.

Or, can you suggest a place to buy a new one?

If you cannot find a new A720, why don't you have a look at the A1000IS which has an optical viewfinder but only a 4x zoom. The A2000 has the 6x zoom but lost the viewfinder.

Yes, the A1000 is an option but in addition to the lower zoom it doesn't have AV or TV modes. I think I've tracked down a source for refurbished A720s. I'd rather buy new but the $150 price for the refurb seems fair enough.
