Asking the same question a different way.....for a casual user, which is the best purchase:

Canon Powershot A570, A630, A640, A650,A720IS

If money were no object, which one would you buy and why?

What other than megapixels and zoom, what are the main differences of the cameras?

If given the option I'd pick image stabilization (optical, not electronic). I rate the A720 over the A650 because I prefer a smaller, lighter camera and I don't see much of a difference in picture quality.

i'm with AndyfromVA on IS. for a casual user, who is one that doesn't want to learn to change all those settings like shutter speed and figure out what goes with what, IS would be a very important feature.

i think the canon a series rocks but one difference besides IS is that some have full manual controls and some only have some controls.
