I now looking at the 870 IS (EU: IXUS 860IS):

It has good rating in all the tests I've read, eg. Cnet:
http://reviews.cnet.com/digital-came...tag=prod.txt.1

But I still can't decide if I should buy this 870IS (EU: 860 IS) or the 890IS (EU: 970 IS):

What do all of you think?

Dennis-

Firstly, as I have said before, the choice is entirely up to you. Secondly, the SD-870 IS which had the 28mm wide anglewas noted to show barrel distortion what at that 28mm wide angle position. Thirdly, I, personally wanted to, at my option, be able to increase the camera's ISO setting to meet the photo situation and the SD-870IS has no OVF. I personally like a good OVF, so I opted for the SD-850 IS model. I was just attempting to share with you the points that sway my own choice.

Here is Steve's comment from the SD-870 IS review:

Well, so you recommend me to buy SD-850 instead on SD-870 and SD-890?

I just shared with you the cumulative factors the played into my recent decision to purchase the Canon SD-850IS camera. It was the better SD camera for me. Your priorities may indeed be somewhat different.

Have a great day.
