..."nobody" is more a subjective statement than reality.
I think that after Panasonic and others released new super zoom cameras, Canon is the only major company that still has a cam with 720P, 2.7 LCD monitor and other things that could be "newer" They have still SX30IS with 34X, but it needs a "refresh".
Many people do not care about having a suitcase with 3-4 lenses, tripod and other stuff.
Yes maybe they are not IQ freaks, and just want a decent image, not state of the art quality.
Maybe they do not have 1000-5000$ to use for a camera... but stating that "nobody" is interested for that, it's like living on another planet.
