One thing was overlooked during your digicam review under $400 that is very important. WARRANTY. If you buy any Sony and dont get a service contract hold on tight. Sony only offers 90 days parts and labor. After 90 days parts only. Most others I saw are 1 year.
I got burned at 4 months with the trigger button sticking on a sony p31 from xmas. Brought it in for service and the part was covered, but with a $180 price for labor. Technician said it would take about 45 mins to fix. Threw the camera in trash and got a new nikon coolpix 3100 with a 4 year replacement warranty for only $60 more.
Buyer beware. :)

I'll take the sony if the garbage man hasn't taken it yet. The wanteree was the ultimate reason that I bought an Olympus over Sony.
