BH Photo: No tax to NJ, CA
Amazon: now collects NJ tax (7%), CA tax (8.75%)

Here is decent tripod to go with this camera

Review by dpreview [dpreview.com].. ken rockwell is NOT reputable. "ken rockwell is the chuck norris of photography"

New firmware improves auto focus speed [canonwatch.com]
Samples from B&H already appear to have latest firmware loaded, surprisingly. Comparison in performance [canonwatch.com]. Don't expect a miracle with the 22 mm and new camera firmware!

How to check your firmware out of the box:
-Turn on camera
-Rotate the mode dial on the top of the camera to the middle position - between auto (green) mode and video.
-Push INFO button and touch [CA] (creative Auto) and scroll with buttons over to select [AV] (aperture priority mode)
-Push MENU button and go to the wrench with 4 dots
-Bottom of screen lists your firmware version

No built in flash. Speedlite 90ex is about $140 extra. --> set up a slick alert for 270EX II ~$125 way way better than 90EX. Roll Eyes (Sarcastic)
No view finder.
Canon EF lens adapter sells for $149 on Amazon
- bulk /grey market versions of same adapter can be found for under $100 on eBay from HK sellers $100
Third Party "Chinese made" Adapters with AF ability sell for 50 dollars on Ebay

Note that the white camera has a glossy finish and is a little more slippery than the black matte version.

Good camera for a newbie who wants to get more into cameras? Currently have an Elph and want to upgrade to something better. Saw the Pentax $499 deal also, which is a better deal for the pricepoint?
Also, in English please (don't understand the camera jargon), is the $299 or $349 a better deal above?

Two ways to look at it: Save the $50 and get the more restrictive F/2 prime, which will get you nice bokeh, low light abilities and slight wide-angle...and then wait for a deal to get a better all-purpose lens. Or pay the extra $50 upfront to get a better focal range, but get annoyed over the long-run at the low-light restrictions and slightly worse image quality...and end up upgrading your all-purpose lens when you fully learn your camera.

Hard to give you a definitive answer, it depends on how point-and-shoot you'll be using this camera for. If you're completely new to photography, I'd spend the $50 and start learning which lenses you might want to upgrade with, what type of photography you like doing, and even if you'd want to upgrade cameras later. Just my $.02.

if you're a newbie, you will probably like the convenience of a zoom better. if you shoot indoors a lot, you might like the faster 22mm lens (might be good for shooting kids indoors and such).
