Default What Camera Are You Buying This Holiday Season

With digital cameras being the hot item this holiday season, I was wondering what digital camera people here are buying, and why you choose that camera?

I just ordered a Sony P92, because it was at a really good price for the megapixels and it uses AA batteries.

Most likely it will be the Sony DSC-F717. The lens quality [and image quality] are hard to beat at the price point of the 717, and with the $100 mail-in rebate and merchants further reducing prices to clear inventory ahead of the 828 arrival, the out-the-door price is really getting hard to pass up.

That being said, I'm still dragging my feet, cuz I would like to see review data on the full production 828 before making a final decision. The 828 specs make it the clearly superior camera, but the price delta between it and the 717 may not make it the better value for me.

[also, there is still the Minolta A1 lurking at the fringes of my subconcious mind].
