...and yes,Thumper26, I too am good with my decision to get the sx10 and not the sx1.It's allot of extra money for not so much of an extra value(FPS).I don't realy care about the HD.And as I said before, my opinion is that the quality of the pictures are better on SX10 and with lesser noise on all ISO settings.
Well, either we both have the same visual impairment or the pictures from the SX10 are of better quality - LOL! (I prefer to believe the latter...)
I really would have liked the 4 FPS, but even that's not quite where I want it and it's a key reason why I'm saving now for a DSLR. I originally had my eye on Canon's 40D but the 50D is getting very close in price to it, so I've readjusted my sights. I like the increased sensitivity, the 50% boost in resolution, the boost to a VGA live screen, and the in-camera correction of vignetting. However, I am concerned about the number of reported "99 error" codes, so I will be following the forums closely on that.
As for my "walking around" camera, I don't see my SX10 being replaced anytime soon - it is so versatile and I love it that much!
