Default Rollei flexline 250 or the Canon sd980

Hi all,

I am looking at getting either a Rollei flexline 250 or the Canon SD980 aka ixus200. Since the Rollei 250 is not available in the state, I am asking anyone form the other side of the pond with experience with it for this question. Which would be a good p&s for take those odd moments, that pulling out the big dslr by take to long? Thanks for any input.

I know the rollei is assemble in hamburg germany.

shoturtle-

I went to google to find out about the Rollei. It is interesting, but IMO, the Canon SD-980/ixus-200 is the better camera.

Have a great day. Happy Holidays.

I want something simple, not looking for a high end p&s as anything more then simple snap shots will be taken with my T1i. I was at the stores 2 weeks ago and was playing around with both the canon s980 and the rollei flexline, and it seem that both took nice shot for what they are. Currently I am using a olympus stylus 820. I am looking for 4x optical. And both the canon and rollei fit the bill and are in the same price range.

Not much information around for the Rollei. So it is a bit of a gamble.

The Sd980 is the safer and more proven option.

I live on both sides of the pond, and the german review on the rollie flexline 250 are quit positive. I just do not know anyone that has one yet.
