So I will be getting a new camera for my birthday and I think I have narrowed it down to either of these cameras. I was at Circuit City and got to play with the SD800 and really liked it, but after doing some research I found that the A710 is the same price and has better zoom. Which of these 2 would you recommend?

Does anyone have either of these camera's? Also how bad is the shutter lag on these? My old camera (Cybershot DSC-P71) took good pictures but had bad shutter lag. I would really like Image stabilization because I have shaky hands when taking pictures.

Also, size isn't a huge issue for me seeing as both of these cameras aren't exactly huge.
Any input on either of these cameras would be great.

Just my two cents worth, but I would go for the A-700 IS and pick up the bonus of more zoom.
