That sounds like a great bargain. And you're right, the SX60HS was announced 
yesterday. It's likely to be about three times that price.

I haven't read much about it, but apart from the zoom range being a bit wider 
and longer, the big improvement I can see for birders is that the electronic 
viewfinder resolution has increased from 202k dots to 922k. That should make it 
significantly easier to find the bird in the viewfinder.

I'm interested to hear if manual focusing is any easier on this model.
