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.

Nicely taken picts there!
And yes "...it is better to let pictures do the talking.."
Much better than someone just talk and talk and no pictures....

Some sample pics of the badminton action i took with G11. The court is extremely dim.. but i guess the pics turn out not as bad as i would expect it to be..

has anyone tested the canon s90? how does it compare to the g10 and g11?
11-09-2009, 05:41 AM #64
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.

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.

S90 downgrades its credentials??..
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??..
