->> Any thoughts on a p/s with longer focal length? My dad's crapped out on him and it had a 30-200. He likes shooting casual wildlife and landscapes. I know little to nothing about p/s and haven't been much help with "Just get a MK IV and some lenses." I've kind of steered him towards a G12, but I think he might be happier with a longer optical zoom.

->> For longer reach, I suggest the Panasonic Lumix ZS8, a small camera with a 24-380mm equivalent lens. Not the fastest, (f/3.5-6.3) but very good image quality from the Leica lens. My wife has the earlier ZS5 version, and is happy with its ease of use and the resultant images.

->> If you are looking for reach, the Canon SX30 IS has an equivalent range of 24-840. I haven't owned one, but I believe its 35x zoom is tops currently.

I've owned the G10 and currently have the S90. Like them both. The G10 had more features, but the S90 is much easier to just slip into a pocket.

->> Jonathan I bought a G12 a few months ago and so far have been very happy. It's sure taking some time though to get used to shooting with a small P&S compared to shooting with a full size camera. I've also heard of a lot of great comments about the S90 and P7000.

->> Still shooting with my old Canon G-2 which goes to show the durability of these small cameras. It goes with me on recreational mountain bike rides and other venues where pro equipment isn't needed or wanted.

However, I have a question????

I have been looking at the G12 because it also has HD video capability. For those with the camera, how does that work out. Good? Bad? So-So?

Thanks
Rich

->> The viewfinder on the G12 is very small and the parallax is just awful. It takes a little getting used to but the articulated LCD is easy to use and allows over the head, behind the back, self-portrait, etc.

Canon seems to upgrade the "G" in September or October each year. Expect the G14 (they would never name anything '13') announcement sometime this month.
