Get the P-50 it has a 3x optical compared to a 2x and it also takes the sony lith. battery or AA's

I disagree. I've used the P-50, and it's autofocus/shutter lag time is BAD (image quality is questionable too). The P 51 is updated, and probably works quite a bit better. (At least the P-71 has less lag).

EDIT: Also, regarding the batteries, who cares? NIMH batteries are dirt cheap compared to Sony's proprietary ones, and I think the P-51 even comes with a set and a charger.
