I saw the C725 and liked the 8x optical zoom but I can't find any reviews or comments about it. If you know anything about it, please let me know. Thanks. Whit

Most C-7x0 users will tell you to avoid this camera...it's basically a C-720 but instead of using Smartmedia memory it uses the new xD memory. Now the reason why most C-7x0 users will tell you to avoid the C-720 and C-725 is those cameras do not have manual focusing available...the long zoom cameras are not good in lower light, and many times manual focusing comes in handy, but as the C-72x's have no manual focus they are useless in those situations. Also there's no way to connect an external flash (except by using a slave) but the focus issue was the big one that turned many C-7x0 users off (including myself since I had to choose between the then current C-720 and the year old C-700 model).

The 720 was really a stripped down economy (cheap) C-7x0 and the C-725 is the xD version of this camera.
