I dont know if I should buy a Canon Digital Ixus 55 or a Panasonic DMC-FX8.
Help me to choose!

The canon, without no doubt!!.. the Pana FX8 is also a good camera, but maybe have more noise.. but if u compare with the new model, the FX9, which is abt 80US$ more and 6mp, battery live longer, noise reducted... that would b a hard choice, for me ;)

But a guy in a camera store said that #because of the Leica optic on the Panasonic FX8 has GREATE quality. Even better then the Ixus 55."

I find it hard to decide.
Panasonic: Anti shake, better flash, you can choose 320x240 when taking motion pictures.
Canon: aluminium (Pan is in plastic), swedish menu, USB 2.0 (dont think Pan got that), and Canon know what they are doing, they are well established.
