While the SX20 is no doubt a good camera, I would say that there are better alternatives, most notably the Panasonic FZ35. While it doesn't have the tilting screen or hot shoe and has slightly less zoom (but not really enough to notice the difference), it is marginally less expensive, shoots in RAW mode, has a Leica manufactured lens, and is considerably smaller than the SX20. I use the FZ28 (predecessor to FZ35) and have no regrets.

Edit: This one also does the RAW mode/HD video and is around the same price as the Panasonic:
