Thanks so much for that article! its very useful!
So here are my main concerns..
the 410 doesnt have IS, which I wont know is a big deal or not until i have some play time with the cam. I like the fact that the 410 is smaller and lighter however I think i would prefer the larger grip feel of the 500.
In my mind the only benefit to me spending the extra $$ and getting a new 410 over the 500 would be:
-10MP over 8MP
-new and not used
-live view could be handy
So i'm still at square one.. if I can get the e500 I think i would like to do that. I would really like to have a newer one though and have the 10mp. No matter which i pick I don't get IS so im afraid all my lowlight photos will be a nightmare.
