Wife is looking at getting a Canon camera and has it down to 2 models. A2000IS A1100IS The A1100IS seems to be the one you can find much easier. Most local stores have it. For some reason the A2000IS is the one nobody stocks. Is it a lemon? Or just something most people don't want? I am leaning more toward the A2000IS (mostly due to the focal lenght). Primarly the camers would be used mostly as a general around (friends, fanmily, general usage) camera. She also wants to use it to take bird phots. The birds come into the yard so there wouldn't be a really long shots. General comment (reviews) seem to complain about bright light making it hard to see thru LCD screen. Also no viewfinder on A2000IS.. problem or no problem? Wife got a Canon for her sister and we had several questions that this forum about it before we purchased it. Just want to thank everybody.. Sister LOVES the camera.
