Local camera shop got an SX130is for me to try and as soon as I held it I was sold! Much easier to hold then the other cameras I tried. The large lens surround is perfect for placing the left hand much like a DSLR and It felt like a proper camera.
Whilst predominantly made of plastic it feels solid and weighty ( it is weighty ), the dials and buttons are a good size, easy to navigate and have a pretty good feel to them. The menu system is very intuitive and there are on screen prompts to guide the less confident user.
One criticism; while the grip is better than on the smaller compacts I tried it would have been so much better if Canon had made the chrome effect strip from rubber for a more tactile feel. Still, can't have everything I suppose.
However, very happy with my purchase so far.......... now time to go out and take some test pics.
