Mike, I should look into the Sony Cybershot as a consideration as well. Almost pulled the plug on the Canon G11 this afternoon. But then I read Sam's post about a possible G12 in the next few months and I decided to wait. ....but I am interested to see how well the Sony Cybershots are. I hear that having the flash raised above the body of the camera (as opposed to Canon putting it in the body) reduces red eye significantly more.
