Short Report: Canon PowerShot Pro1
This compact 8-megapixel camera includes a professional-level lens
One outstanding feature is that the zoom ring changes to a focusing ring when manual focus is used, making manual focus very easy. Filters attach with an included bayonet holder and the 1.5x tele accessory lens attaches smartly with a readily available bayonet adapter.
