    I'm tired of carrying my 50D around with me, so I am looking to get a high end point & shoot for some street photography, I'm looking into the Canon G11 or the Sigma DP-2. Has anyone here had experiences with those cameras? Or do you guys know any other good ones, I open to suggestions.

    I recently got a canon powershot sx200 is. It is a point an shoot, but it is on the larger side (as compared with other point and shoots, it is still smaller than say, an slr) the first thing I noticed is the lens. it is huge! 12x optical zoom. it looks almost comical fully extended. but the camera also has high resolution images (12 megapixels if I remember correctly, the camera isnt in front of me) and a good feature set. I recommend it.

    I've had the SX200 IS since Christmas 2009. It is a great camera. As long as you know what you're doing and don't just rely on Auto mode, I highly recommend it.

    Eh. I generally don't use anything above 200. 400 when necessary.
