It is very doubtful indeed that the Canon S-3 is still at "the top of the shop." Most folks, have departed from the UZ category, some more swiftly than others, shifting to Consumer DSLR cameras.

Just as a quick update, I ended up buying the Panasonic FZ8. I have to admit that it was probably the last camera that I thought I would buy, but after endless hours of research on the web, and talking to different people, I decided to go with it. I bought it about a week ago now, and am very happy with it. I think that it will take me many hours to learn how to use all of it's features, but from what I've have seen, I would highly reccomend it to anyone in my position.

I'm in the same situation as you, although movies aren't so important too me.

I'm quite tempted byits"advanced sport shooting" mode.

"This mode combines high shutter speed shooting and intelligent continuous auto-focusing. The cameras can quickly focus on fast-moving subjects by predicting where those subjects will be in the frame. This predictive technology also helps to reduce shutter lag, the time it takes for the camera to focus and shoot" - taken from press release.

Unless Canon bring out the S4 in the meantime:roll:
