Hi there Peter,
I have the previous model the Canon Powershot S2 IS. The zoom lens is
wonderful and is excellent for casual bird photography. It would not be
classed in the professional range; there are several better systems for
professionals - and more expensive.
For my reasons check this article I wrote on my blog
Also check out the photo gallery on my blog - all taken with the Canon.
Hope this helps.

Has anyone here tried a camera with image stabilisation? This seems to
be becoming more common on digital cameras. I've been looking at the
Canon PowerShot S3 IS. With 12x optical zoom it has a maximum focal
length of 432mm which should, in theory, be more useful with the
camera's optical image stabilisation, but I haven't tried it.
