Very interesting article.
Yes Chris, that had been on the way for a few days.
Oh right. Sorry.
No thats alright, I`d been waiting for it
Darn - the cash has arrived in my bank account - now I have to make a decision.......
Amazon are now offering it at this price
Looks ok to me Now if they've any left by the time I get home tonight I can do something about it
Well, I finally got to hold one. Not sure now. And I'm a bit iffy about the dof. It seems that if you want narrow dof it might be a problem. I've also got cameras with a slightly longer zoom too. I'm having another think, although I do think it's a nice piece of kit. It's very small and pocketable, but I just don't know if it's what I want.
I already have a G11 which, although not perfect, really does mostly what I want albeit it's a bit slow on the capture side, and the extra expenditure on yet another small camera isn't really cost effective for my needs. The G11 also has the swingy out screen which is very useful.

Hmmm, not at yesturdays price they have shot back up

Should be better than G11, but obviously its not going to be as good as a dslr.
I thought it had gone back up again but was still better than Jessops price (and they'd probably not have any in stock).
I placed the order last night - payment wouldn't go through. Have just got off the phone to the credit card fraud team and they'd blocked payment as I don't usually put that large amount of money on the credit card I'd have sooner used the debit card since the cash is in my account but credit cards are safer......
Next I'll get a message saying that they have none in stock anyway!
Re DOF - Quote: Should be better than G11, but obviously its not going to be as good as a dslr.
This was the bit in the write-up that made me think -
"As for shallow depth of field junkies, this is NOT your camera. With the super wide lens that is in reality a 7-28mm your depth of field will be huge, even at f/2. If you zoom out to 112mm and keep it at f/2.8 you can get some shallowness but nothing like you will get with a larger sensor camera and longer lens."
I did like the barrel turn on/off and zoom though. Very neat indeed. The jury's still out.
I just did a quick test indoors with mine.
Full zoom wide open you get some pretty decent dof.
even at f11 theres some there.
Not in a position to upload the images.
Do you mean you get large DOF? I want narrow dof.

Your not going to get much in the way of a shallow depth of field with any camera with a sensor this size or smaller, a lot will depend on how close to the subject you are and the length of the lens.
Just noticed the latest price on Amazon, now £599
