I am buying my first digital. After a fair amoount of research on this site and others, I have narrowed it down to these two. It is difficult to get info opn the A520 (as it is new?). I want to take pictures on trips, and for family events. I plan to make 5x7's for a photo album. Does anyone have any advice?

I have a friend who has an A510. It produces beautiful photos and because it has a 4x optical zoom, it effectively creates the same pictures that most 4-5 mega-pixel cameras produce. This is because by zooming in the desired subjects are alway large in the final photograph than with some of the 3x optical zoom cameras. I have a canon 10D and some of the pictures from the A510 rival those from the 10D in 5x7 and 4x6 sizes. Of course it isn't very fast but definitely produces usable shots. It's (A520)a real good value at 299.00 list price. Read Steve's reviews for both cameras.
