    Well, after killing my old camera a while ago (A60), Its time to get another one. I was looking at the Canon a80 as a replacement, but then i stumbled upon the G5. Is the g5 really worth the extra 200 dollars or so over the a80? I mean, it only has a 4x zoom compared to a 3x zoom, and only a 5.0 MP compared to a 4.0MP.

    plus a better lens, more advanced features, 10x the battery life etc, although its much larger and heavier, you might look at the s60 instead, sort of in the middle of the 2

    I need a pocket-sized Canon :hs: Anyone know when the new Ax0's are coming out? I dont' feel like buying the current generation because better ones should come out soon enough.

    they really didn't improve the a75 over the a70. Canon didn't announce any new consumer digicams to come out, other than what's already out.
