Hi Gerry, I have an opinion, since I've never owned either one of these. I like the A640for it's higher mp count, for cropping/enlargement, and it's three years newer technology compared to the G5. For your stated purpose, and assuming your night shots would employ flash, either camera would work just fine. Personally, I would choose the A640 simply because of its higher mp count (cropping). For a4 enlargement with no cropping, both cameras would be fine. So my vote goes to the A640. Hope I helped... Robert
