    Young buck

    This inquisitive male deer came close enough for me to make this photo with the G10 at full tele, slight crop:

    Thanks Helen! Unfortunately we too commonly see deer killed by traffic. There are so many of them in our neighborhood.

    I'm rather partial to venison, I'm afraid.

    Ohhhhh Bertie
    There are sooo many Other Things to Eat
    Heres a Funny Story:

    One Halloween Eve in Salem Mass.
    w/Friends in a very posh restaurant
    My husband Eric who had once been a hunter in his Youth
    and feeling nostalgic ordred Venison....
    When it arrived he broke out in Tears
    thinking of the poor family that had been destroyed
    Needless to say he had a single malt or two
    ....

    Wow, what a terrific shot, Amin! So, are you now a G10 owner, or just testing?
    Regards,

    Thanks Joan! I bought the G10 for testing, but I'm quicklyy realizing it is a keeper .

    Nice shot Amin. If this is a keeper, do you go around with a bevvy of small sensor cameras? How do you choose which one to use?

    Bertie and Helen - I'm in Holland tonight, and I'm ashamed to say that I had venison fillet for supper

    Just this guy you know

    Thanks Brian! I left my family at a playground and walked about half a mile to where I had seen deer. I had no luck finding any, and when I returned to my family they were all jumping up and down about how close this guy had come to have a look. He was practically right next to them the whole time .

    Thanks Jono. I've decided to keep the G10, D-LUX 4, and DP1, at least for now. I don't carry them all though. Depending on where I'm going, I just pick one or the other. If I were to pick one, it would be the D-LUX. It just suits my needs the best since it is the best for indoor low light while also very good outside and not bad for short tele portraits. The G10 doesn't fit my needs as well as the other two, but it is so good I don't know if I can sell it . As I see it, Canon basically perfected a long, slow evolutionary process with this camera.
