    There should be quite a few users here bah. The camera has been the most popular on CNet asia for quite a few months liao. Anyway, there's also a dedicated flickr group: http://www.flickr.com/groups/64421451@N00/

    If you guessed it, yes, I'm an owner as well. Hur hur. Love the cam but I only use it for casual/social snap shots since it's easy to bring around.

    Yeah, the Ixus is rather limiting for serious shooting due to the lack of manual controls. I'm using a Canon 20D (see my profile for more details). If you're in the market for a Canon DSLR i suggest you wait till after PMA when Canon should be announcing some new models.

    My friend bought it and I played with it a while

    my comments are as follows:

    Pro
    - 28mm wide angle
    - light and portable
    - good closeup


    Con
    - no battery indicator
    - no EXIF data on LCD
    - AUTO ISO cannot tell the actual ISO value from PC
