Four new Casio compacts, two of them start at 28mm (new digital cameras)

Casio gets bonus points by adding a 28-112mm 4x optical zoom lens on two of their compacts, but loses the bonus points because it goes for pixel-stuffing with a new 10mp 1/2.3" sensor. Yikes! 10mp on a 1/2.3"? Mercy!!! Ant hills are not as dense as that sensor!
