honestly, this is the sub $1500 camera people were dying for.
The only downside is the crappy AF system, but you're using the center point 90% of the time anyways.
This is a phenomenal camera. I've taken some absolutely amazing pictures with it - the latest blew up nicely to 24x36 without any artifacts or pixelation.
My best deal: iphone 32GB 3GS for $160. $399 Upgrade - 35% bing CB - $100 price credit from AT&T= $160
