Default Re: Canon S5 IS

Hi John,
My brother got it a few weeks ago and I played with it. It seems nicely built, it amazingly versatile with this huge zoom, although the wide end is not that wide (might not be a problem for your type of photgraphy). I think that it's a good camera.
Downsides:
_ the "electronic viewfinder" is a bit crap
_ quite noisy at ISO 400 and very noisy above (the lense is pretty fast, so it compensates for it a little bit)
Hope that helps!
Nicolas
