    I was REALLY considering the A80, until I realized I could get the Canon S50 for only about $20 more, and a full MP higher resolution. That sealed the deal.. I JUST ordered my S50 :wiggle: .. can't wait.. .came to $350 plus shipping which was $14 for standard, I opted for express 3 day shipping for $23... I'm impatient :)
