    Yes, I have said many times P&S is now King and will remain so for the future.

    Anyway I think better stop at this.. or start another thread? this topic really getting OOT
    Good idea to reverse the lens provided the lens is not of symmetrical design, but then the set-up cannot focus to infinity. But a reversed non-macro lens, whilst showing a marked improvement, is still not as good as a macro lens. A macro lens can take both macro and also distant subjects, but if it goes for farther reach with a bellows, it also cannot focus to infinity.
    BTW, a macro lens of non-symmetrical design can also be reversed for a marked improvement, but then its infinity focussing capability is disabled.
    Stay away from macro lens unless you use it 95% of the time. The reason I got the Elmar macro was to take photos to be used for new product catalogs, fliers, copying, for my customers.

    I love PnS cameras. Even though I own a Canon 450D, and a couple of lenses now, I still use my Canon G10 quite often. Both cameras have their strength and usage.

    Instead of participating in the discussion, I just want to share of the shots from my other older camera, a PnS Canon A620, now "retired" . Sometimes it is better to let pictures do the talking:

    All shots below were taken with PnS Canon A620













    There are a lot more at my Flickr page.

    Yes. I took all those underwater pictures. Most of them using PnS Canon A620, later switching to Canon G10. None using DSLR, the housing too expensive

    crank the iso to 800 or 1600. shutter speed at least 1/320 or 1/500 to freeze some movements. spot meter player's face and you will know which combination of aperture and shutter speed in manual mode.

    I have not tested the S90. One of my friend just got a S90. He told me G11 is still better in terms of pic quality. Lesser noise. But one good thing about S90 is that it is smaller and handy.

    In my opinion, both the Canon G10 and G11 are now in no man's land. It is too big to be a true P&S camera. It is the same size as the micro four thirds, and that means trouble for the G10 or G11 because they are relatively primitive in this size territory. Perhaps, Canon should down-size the G10 and G11 to half its size, and it will then be king of the pack or at least one of the industry leaders.

    Default If size really matters and the issue..

    ..and if the G10 and G11 are too big and in "no man's land", then take a look @ the Canon SD880, if not be the Canon S90. Both of which do the same thing & have relatively equal specs as the G10, at a much smaller and faster package.

    Yes, the Canon S90 is a late catch-up of the Leica LX3. But why does its lens goes from F/2.0 to close to f/5.0 over its zoom range? From an impressive F/2.0 to f/5.0 downgrades its credentials. Such a drastic drop in lens speed is always associated with low-end cameras. If it could only stay at f/2.0 all through its zoom range then it could kick the LX3 from its pedestal.

    Compare the zoom range between the 2 cameras:
    the way i look at it, the Panasonic Lumix LX3 (if that's the same Leica LX3) only goes as far as 60mm in focal length. Imagine if the LX3 has the same focal range as the S90?? Making a 4x or 5x f/2.0 lens would be a difficult task, and probably make the camera larger, wouldn't it??..
