Greetings all. The saga of the replacement for the SP500UZ continues. The story so far: Wife throws SP500 at ground in a vicious attempt to smash it and totally succeeds (warning - this element of the story has been embellished for artistic impact) Put upon husband secures agreement that a replacement can be sought and spends his total waking hours researching what's around. Finally settles (sort of) on Canon's Powershot S3 IS as it seems at least as good as the old Olympus. BUT I happened to have a spare hour last weekend despite the demands of 3 daughters (and the aforementioned wife) and found myself in one of the local electrical superstores and saw this: K-M Dynax (Maxxum) 5D + 17-70 kit for £200 (or around $400) marked as discontinued line. This seems to be a fantastic bargain - I used to run a number of SLR cameras so the prospect of another wouldn't faze me and I know that I'd need to invest in a longer lens to maintain the range that I've become accustomed to. Does anyone have any comments either for or against a purchase?
