Hi Papa L,
I've got to agree with you there. Apparently it's targeted at point and shooters who want to upgrade to a cheap DSLR but you're hard pushed to find a 6MP compact nowadays let alone a new DSLR. Ok, I know it's not all about megapixels but I think they'll have a tough job convincing their target market of that. And as mentioned often in this forum, there are some very compelling reasons for going for a superzoom / bridge camera.
Personally, I'm going for one of the 10MP DSLRs with the hope I'll get a fraction more use out of it before I inevitably succumb to the newer, shinier, go faster version.
Ha ha – I haven’t bought my first DSLR yet, and I’m already thinking of an upgrade!!
