Default Canon G5 or Sony f717?? plz help!!

Hi all... my first post in here... and hope to post much more, this site really helped me a lot! Thanks!

Ok.. Im looking to buy my first DC and Im gettin nuts comparing and searchin good prices for 5MP cameras
I am looking for a 5.0 Mp camera, not point and shoot, not SLR and the 2 I have "almost" decided for is the G5 and F717 ... both I found here in Brazil at virtualy the same price... around 900 dollars.

Please... could anyone help me decide this???

I plan to print 5x7 images and 8x10, I need some Zoom, good batteries(dont plan to buy extra) and mostly IMAGE QUALITY!
The pictures should be family pics, landscapes, images from trips...

Thanks all

Hi,
I'm new to this forum as well, I just bought the DSC-F717 on the advice from a Photographer friend of mine (www.photohome.com) he has had the DSC-F707 the Previous version of the 717. He has taken some amazing shots with his. Based on his work and his experience I purchased the 717 about 3 weeks ago from Amazon.com for 699.00 (Cheapest place I found) I have no problems with my 717. I also bought the started kit from amazon which included Camera bag, 2 filters, and an extra battery for 68.00. I hope this helps.

Chuck
