Tullio-

Things may indeed be different today, but a year ago when I did a "project" on the SX-100. It was a compromise camera that you never knew precisely where it would focus. I see the Canon SX-100/200 as a better choice.

You also have to consider the Sony H-20 as well. I know it is not a camera you really like, Tullio, but it has received excellent professional reviews.

You are right, Sarah. I don't really care that much for the H10/20. They have no EVF (very common these days but the H10/H20 LCD is also on the poor side in terms of resolution), 10x zoom is not short but not long either and the worse of all, the lens starts at 37mm (not even the old standard 36mm), which is way way too tight, particularly for indoor photography. It may have received good reviews but still, it does not appeal to me at all. I go with my H1 any time!

Well, Tullio-

I have to once more admit that you are exactly correct regarding the H-20. However, for a young person with just one camera it is indeed a very viable alternative.

I remain to have high hopes for the WX-1. It could be the camera that breaks Sony loose from their recent stagnation period of the last several years.
