    Im living on my own now and I dont think Ill be able to put my DSLR to good use, I wont be able to buy lenses, nor will I be able to fully use it so Im considering selling it.

    Now I was wondering, is there any good point and shoot cameras with fast autofocus? Heres my criteria of a P&S

    1. I don't really want a big P&S, I'd like a semi-compact one.

    2. Somewhat fast autofocus.

    3. At least 5MP

    4. Around $400 or less.

    thanks

    if its already paid for, why not just keep it? especially if you are ever going to want a dslr in the future

    There really isn't much else that compare until you go to a bulkier setup, like a pro1, f-828, c-8080 etc. The Minolta A-200 is also a great one, but might be a little pricier, teh advantage is built in image stabilization, father zoom and the best digital viewfinder available.

    The G6 looks a little too large...how is the Canon S70?

    a piece of shit compared to a dslr or decent P&S


    if you are just looking for something to take your friends pics with or post fake macros onOT, its fine. If you want a truely capable camera, you gotta go large
