This is going to be a highly debated camera I'm sure. That lens is killer. The sample photo shows some noise even at ISO 80 (to be expected on that size sensor with all those pixels) but still I wouldn't mind having a play with one.

Hard to tell from the photos, but certainly it is different to the SX1/10/20 bodies.

Yep a quick google found this http://www.usa.canon.com/cusa/consum...ershot_sx30_is all the specs are in the tabs.

Continuous Shooting
Normal: Approx. 1.3 shots/sec. (when shooting in P mode), Approx. 3.6 shots/sec. (when shooting in Low Light mode)
AF: Approx. 0.6 shots/sec. (when shooting in P mode), Approx. 1.0 shots/sec. (when shooting in Low Light mode)
LV: Approx. 0.6 shots/sec. (when shooting in P mode), Approx. 1.1 shots/sec. (when shooting in Low Light mode)
- Under conditions where the flash does not fire automatically.
- Differs depending on the zoom position.

That is one heck of a zoom lens. Think I will need to visit the camera shops when this thing comes out.
