Default Sony DSC 717 vs Minolta 7hi???

I have been reading up on these 2 cameras, and finding little bad about each one. Does anyone have strong preference for one vs the other? I know they are not the same price or anything, but I am having my first child, and don't want to miss anything.

Beyond image quality, I want quick shot to shot, and power on to shot times. I want it to be easy to use (for the wife), but be able to play with everything (for me).

Let me know what you guys think.

in addition to my ans on the other forum you posted a 7Hi in high mode and shooting and extra fine quality (2.5:1 comp jpg) and full res depending on the light 9 frames at 3fps. then you will wait for the buffer to clear which will take about 45-50 secs to clear. these are big low comp jpgs. go lower res and get more shots before buffering out. at 1280x960 your out 20+ shots

depending on the cf card you put in the start up is about 2 secs
