Hmmm....yes, quite nice, but I'm happy I bought a Canon A650IS a fortnight ago. Almost the same camera but it has a 6x zoom, 12MP and a flip & twist screen (a deal-breaker for me and anyone who's had one). Price was higher of course.
What is nice about both of these Canons is their size & weight. Just enough heft to feel solid but easy to cart around. I "upgraded" from a Panasonic FZ30, a helluva good camera, but like SLRs and semi-SLRs, a real lump to cart around.
