I FINALLY decided on the Canon and planning to buy it this weekend. Read many GREAT reviews about the Sony. I know the Sony is a 7MP but the reviews I read were people using them at the 5MP setting, which is what I would probably do.

I use this for all around photos - mostly of my dogs, family, friends, vacations, etc - nothing major, printing very few 8x10 and some smaller. My Minolta S414 takes too long to start and take a picture and I miss those special shots. Want something small with good resolution that will be there in a hurry when I need it - no muss, no fuss!

I also read about the error many people get with their Canon's and am a bit apprehensive about buying - I made my mind up but those reports and the reviews on the SONY 150 or 200 made me walk out of the store without a camera.

Can anyone shed some light on the subject???

I've had a P200 for about a month now and have no complaints. It has been a good supplemental camera for our Digital Rebel. If speed is important then the P200 might be your best choice. It powers up and is ready to shoot in about 1 second. Also, it gives you enough manual controls to take some creative shots or get a good picture when the point and shoot mode isn't quite right.

I looked at the Canon S70 when I was making a decision on which camera to purchase and in the end the size and speed of the P200 won out. Hope this helps.
