I've been looking for a digital camera for the past few weeks, my girlfriend enedup buying the A80 which I tested for a week up in S.F. I've enjoyed using it, it takes good pictures but has trouble with night shots, but overall its a very nice camera. But the S50 apeals to me more and it has few extras, and even thought its a MegaPixel greater I know the images dont differ much in comparison, as I saw in a review. One trouble I have with the A80 is the LCD screen, since the A70's and S50's are superior; and with the S50 is the battery, as in not being able to just walk in to any store to re-power the camera. Does anyone own a S50 or both and like to share any comments?
