Pros: Big screen and touch screen is excellent! Big angular and zoom of 5x very good. it is alone!!
Cons: I have a SD850IS - This is an excellent camera. This is true "PowerShot". Very fast to call and to catch pictures. Buttons are very practical. SD980IS is slow to catch pictures, it is long among a picture and other. Button on/off is very bad!
Excerpt: I use a Nikon D300 for 'professional' shoots and mostly take my Canon Powershot A710is with me for the holidays and in case I just want quick snapshots. I was looking for a camera that had the same picture quality as A710is, but only with a wider lens (around 24mm instead of 35mm) to accompany the D300. In other words, the new compact should replace some work of the D300... Little I knew, bought this PowerShot SD980 IS (Ixus 200is in Europe) mostly for it's 24mm.
