SX10+CHDK vs SX20

I have a question:

Between these 2 setups, the only differences will be:

SX20's 12.1mp > SX10's 10mp
SX20's 720p video > SX10's VGA
SX20's more convenient usage because no need for complicated/buggy CHDK
SX10's kick-ass CHDK super-rich features
SX20's noisier pics because of stretched images but not stretched sensor

Correct? If not, please post your thoughts.
I didn't mention SX20's HDMI port because SX10 doesn't need it.
SX20's specs: http://www.dpreview.com/news/0908/09081904canonsx20is.asp#specs

Ciao!

This does not belong in the SX10 development thread. Thanks acseven for moving it.

CHDK pretty much doesn't affect the normal operation of the camera, so a camera without it isn't "more convenient". If you don't want to use CHDK features, you just ignore CHDK (or disable it by unlocking your card, or using a card that doesn't have CHDK on it)

The other downside of the SX20 is that it's not actually in stores yet.
Don't forget what the H stands for.

Hej,
Obviously SX10 is better than SX20, CHDK or not.

SX20 is a stupid update, imo, I think my SX10 pictures take too much room already, and at 100% view they don't look good, so 2 Mpixels more won't help, and diffraction will be worse, too, especially with the zoom at F5.7.
