Hi!, im in the process of deciding which camera to buy, after a lot of research i narrowed itdown to Canon s3 and Sony h5, The Sony H5 has IMHO better image quality (this is my conclusion after seeing a lot of samples in and reviews, Sony pics look sharper more focused and better in low light) and one extra mp, the Canon S3 is smaller, has a better movie mode and swivel LCD (both last things important to me) but i´m worried about image quality, specially i saw samples and read opinions about focusing issues and the lens seems to be of poor quality, to be honest i would buy Canon S3because in general it better fit my needsthe only thing that concerns me is its focusing problem, can anybody comment on this? Thanks!

I too have been debating between the Canon S3 and the Sony H5 for months. Although I've been a fan on Canon for a long time, I finally caved in tonight and bought the Sony. My sister has the Canon S3 and constantly complains that she has trouble focusing. Many of her shots are blurry. Like you, I really wanted the swivel LCD and better movie mode, but on the otherhand, the Sony has an extra megal pixel and a HUGE 3" LCD. After seeing the focusing issues my sister has had, I think the Sony is the way to go.
