I need help!!!! I can't choose between these 2 cameras!! I love the antishake on the A2, but I also like the low light assist on the 8080. They both seem to have favorable features....I like the 7x of the A2 zoom, but the 8080's 5x zoom isn't bad....PLEASE Please, can someone help me out with which one will take better pix....I have a toddler - so I need quick focus, etc...and I have a teen that horse back rides, so I need to take fast pix....I like to go to shows - like sesame street with the toddler & take pix....I tried out the A2 at one & it did pretty well (didn't have the 8080 then to try) - I don't like that it takes 2 hands to operate A2's zoom,- I had trouble at the show trying to zoom in on a character with a toddler in my lap, so I like the 8080 one finger zoom....any and all advice very very welcome! and I love the low light focus assist light on the 8080 - I'm so confused & I need to make a decision this weekend!
please email me!

I'm attaching pix from each - not sure if I'm doing something wrong, or if I have the white balance off or what, but the A2 pix seem darker but more color accurate & the 8080 seem "bright & bluish" to me?? http://www.snapfish.com/share/p=519...c=SYE/otsi=SALB

i just bought the olympus c-8080 today. IMO, for $462 at butterflyphoto.com, it can't be beat.
