Default Sony dsc p51 vs Canon a40

I just bought the cybershot p51 yesterday. But they also had the Canon A40 for 8 dollars more. Now, I'm just a simple point and shoot person with my pentax 35 mm. But take lots of pix of family and friends. Would still like clarity.in outdoor and indoor shots. Nightshots aren't a big deal for me, yet.

I have looked over all reviews, including Steve's, but none say definitively which is better. I guess it is relative. Anyways, what I'm trying to say is that I'm still thinking about the A40. But it is a little more bulkier than the p51 and does the ability to use Manual controls matter much for someone like me? And do you have to push the shutter down halfway to focus on the A40 first, like in the cybershot. I find this feature on the Sony a little annoying.

Ok, Just would like some confirmation that I bought the right one for me, and if not...gonna run out an get the A40 instead. Hahahaha.


PS. Hope I'm posting this in the right forum, if not , sorry.
