usa.canon.com: "Macro functionality not provided." That kills it for me.
I gave up long ago trying to use a point and shoot for macro, at least my kind (copy stand based) because it was impossible to get any kind of preciseness of zoom with the stupid rocker switch. You press on it to try to adjust and it either does nothing or overshoots without fail. That actually led to getting an interchangeable lens system and so on, so here I am today.
