That's a tough choice indeed. Given the retail prices I'd say that the deal on the Sony is a better one

Hi, I have a V-1, I had a Canon A300 and played with Sony F-717 and Canon A70. I made some decent photos with V1 but I hate it for 2 main reasons: autonomy is disastrous even with a spare Li+ battery, awful skin tones when in shadows. My conclusion:

V1 = focus speed, low light operation, fancy look

Canon =image quality, exposure acuracy, pleasant colors

Thecrop attached is one of the worst with V1, but this happens to a lesser or bigger degree in every picture where skin is not brightly lit. I've even seen it (although almost insessisable) in F-717 too.

I'd go with Canon A95, but it is slower.
