Default canon a80 v/s sony p8

i have heard out here that many of the canon a70's are defected n hence i wanted to no. if its the same wid the a80 . coz i live in india n out here the canon a80 is for Rs. 30000 ( which is like 670 us dollar) and im gettin the same camera for 420 dollars in dubai , its the same wid sony . therefore ill be gettin my camera from dubai . and canon showroom here wont replace the piece if its defected they say i would have to replace it from dubai itself , thats y i took the p8 as an option which orginally consisted of the canon a70 or a80 .

which one out of these is a better camera , im talkin bout build , image quality , lens wise . i have also heard that the sony digital zoom are much better than wat the other brands give and sonys digital zoom wont distort the image as the other cameras digital zoom would do ??? the price is almost the same ( the p8 is juss 60$ less than a80 ) one thin i hated bout the sony was its shutter speed which was only 1/30 in normal mode n 2 in twilight mode as compared to canon which had a 15 sec shutter spped (that is slowest shutter speed) . but i have heard that the sony is extremely fast as compared to the canon and drew my attention to the sony camera . the sony has a shot to shot time of 2 sec n the canon has of 3.5 . i have also heard that there is alot of purple fringin in the canon camera .

so which one do ya ll suggest is a better camera between these 2 .
im lookin for good built , good image quality , should be fast in takin pics one after the other in normal mode , should have a good flash range (as ill be usin it mainly for parties , clubbin etc )

this may sound borin and all that shoot , but i desperately need a digicam ASAP so all ya replies are more than welcome .

I would go for the Canon A80. My work has the Sony p10 5mp and I'm not too thrilled on the quality of the resolution. It also has alot more noise than I care for.

i too had a nikon 4300 , i loved its pic and all , but it was too bulky n too slow , so is the canon as slow n bulky as it or faster n smaller .
if ya had to chose between the 3 ( canon a80 n nikon 4300 and the 3100 ) which would it be ----- image quality wise and speed mostly for indoor pics ????

as many of the a70 were defected i hope thats not the same wid the a80 coz ill be gettin my camera from dubai as it will cost me less then wat it will cost me here ( india ) n i wont be able to exchange it out

TO A> I would take my A80 over any of the nikons that you listed,Its faster and smaller,And i LOVE the AA battery that you just charge and recharge.I hated the battery system in the nikon 4300 and 5700.But thats how i feel about it. I think that the a80 gives a greater over all photo than the 3100,4300.But you CANT beat the nikon for macro work its king of macro.Tealblue
