Default Sony DSC-F717 or Nikon Coolpix 5700

I have finally decided to replace my old Olympus D-600L camera, after having it for nearly 4 years.

So now I'm torn between 2 cameras that I am really interested in buying. I wanted to know what expereinces you guys have had with these cameras and what you would recommend.

Please let me know both pros and cons of the cameras and which one you think would be great for an advanced user.

I have read reviews on both and they seem to rank almost on the same level, I think, so I really don't know which one I want to get.

Any help would be appreciated. Thanks!

Default 717 v 5700

I went through the same thing several months ago. I would suggest this, decide what you want your camera to do for you, in other words right tool for the job you want to do. Generally one will win out. If not which one can you buy the cheapest. I looked at both of these cameras and found them comparable in most areas. I shoot macro alot and the 717 seemed a better choice for that concept plus the 717 was cheaper and still is. It is an excellent camera, but so is the 5700. In short, no wrong answer here. Good luck!

The Sony has excellent lens. You would favor it if you were going to shoot in many low light situations. Also has a laser guided lamp, which I find great.
