Okay, I'm a (very) novice user & recently bought a Canon A620. I LOVED it (great pics, videos, ease of use, etc.) until the lense cover got stuck 1/2 closed rendering the camera useless. So, after 3 weeks of ownership, I returned it. I have since then discovered that I am not the only one who has had this problem, mostly occurring with the A540 as well as the A620. I might add that I was very careful with this camera-no bumping, dropping, or anything else that may have contributed to the faulty lense cover.

My question is, should Iget another A620 in the hopes that my particular one was a bit testy, or should I spend a little more and get a SD600? Are the pics/videos/ease the same in the SD600 as the A620, or would I be losing any quality in the pics?

I also, tossed around a A540 into the equation for a while until I realized that the LCD was lacking in quality. Any thoughts?

The A620 is capable of taking much better photos than the SD600. The SD600 takes decent photos, but most of the pics will exhibit blurriness/fuzziness around the edges. Take a look at Steve's sample pics in his reviews and you will see what i mean.

I bought an A610 last December which is essentially the same camera as the A620 and have shot thousands of pictures with it with no problems so far. One time my lens did not retract but that was due to dead batteries. I changed them and it worked fine. I would definitelybuy this camera again and for many good reasons. Good luck with your decision.
