More than rumors: Canon coming up with a 20X superzoom digital camera

We picked up some internet chatter of a 20X IS superzoom digital camera by Canon. The rumored name is "SX1 IS" and is discussed in the Canon dpreview forum. Very few details are mentioned such as 20X, IS, EVF, and 28-560mm. Although this seems credible, please treat it as a rumor until or unless it is officially announced.

This also raises concerns among glass-half-empty S5-IS fans, while glass-half-full S5-IS fans may hope for a more advanced model that doesn't make too many sacrifices just to get to a higher zoom ratio.

A little bit more on these at CanonRumors.com.
