Default c700 or c720

I can get the c720 for about the same price as the c700. Any advice on which one is better. Will I notice the 8x (c720) zoom being a difference from the 10x (c700)? Will the increased pixels on the c720 be a better investment? Will I miss sound with the c720. Seems to me they downgraded the features on the new model instead of upgraded.

I just went through the same decision 3 weeks ago. The extra features of the C700 made may sway that way. 2 megapixels is enough for 8x10 prints, and 3 megapixels wasn't worth losing the manual one-touch white balance, manual focus, and the extra zoom (as I came from using a fully manual SLR, total control was important to me). I bought the C700 three weeks ago, and saved $250cdn over the C720.

If you can wait, there should be a C730 coming out soon, it has 3megapixel, 10x zoom, and *some* of the manual features back. Of course it will be more expensive than either the C700 or C720.

I am hung up on the 2100UZI, proven winner, can still be found. more pixcells=bigger, alot of other things come into play for the quality of pic, happy with 2.1, also have the 700 and others.
