Cameras with built in GPS

Just a fun question since I'm not looking for a camera right now. Are there any signs that manufacturers are moving to building GPS tagging into their cameras?

I've got an external GPS attachment for my current camera and like the fact that it (usually) tags my pictures with geographical info. I just wish it was a built-in feature.

A bunch of cameras in the point and shoot world, including my HX30, have built in GPS tagging. Mine also has a logging feature so I could see a map of where I have been.
I don't use it, though.. For privacy reasons at home, and battery concerns at WDW (although I think I would of been ok battery wise)

My Sony A55 has the GPS on it. Its a cool feature but not something I really need. Once in a while in Lightroom ill pull it up on the map just to see where I was.

Definitely the higher end sony cameras have it - A65, A77 definitely have it and all signs point to the new A99 full frame having it as well.

Not sure about other manufacturers than sony though as that's what I own / know about

Yep. Sony has had it in many of their DSLR's for a couple of years. Currently the A77 is their highest end that has the feature.
