Funny stuff. Not really surprised that the XS outperformed the Canon. I would have liked to see it up against a Pentax K-r. Many of the same issues would have turned up in terms of available focal length and video, but fps, low light shooting, macro etc would have been better on the k-r (IMO of course :biggrin:)

I'd agree the K-r is a better camera than the Rebel T3, but Chris couldn't have gotten a telephoto as well for $800. It's amazing how many more options we would have had if the budget was $900-1000.

Indeed! All that said, though, the XS is still very appealing, even though I mostly use a K-5. I tire of lens changes at times and thats when I want a good superzoom. My Panasonic FZ100 just doesn't do it for me :-/

Dammit!! they shouldn't make these for me to watch and then want one! lol
LOL Kerri, you already wanted one. So did I. I'm very to and fro about it though, money being an issue (ie...none) but I've decided that I actually dont want to part with any of my cameras so whatever's next has to wait a very long time. Theres a new iphone, ipad and 27" Thunderbolt screen before any more cameras.
