I bought both at Futureshop (I can return it within 14 days).
The E900 was better in my room with low light.
Still testing both ...

That is the way to do it. You always have that 14day return option, as your "insurance." I will be interested to hear your evaluation of the E-900.

So, I took many pictures under different. I would say that both cameras take good pictures. Pretty difficult to see diffrences.

But, under low-light outside, the E900 takes better pictures with the auto-mode or N-mode. Of course, if you use manual-mode, we can have pretty much the same thing. But, if I want to take a quick picture and without tripod, the E900 is better.
In manual-mode, without a tripod the pictures are often blurry.

With the A620, I can take faster pictures with the flash. There is more option, but with photoshop I can do the same thing. It has longer battery life and we can take more pictures on the memory card.

So, if it would be of the night pictures, I would have bought the A620 ...
Still undecided ...

I believe that it would be accurate to say that:

Under low light level or night time conditions that the Fuji E-900 will be the winner. However, if you use flash and eliminate the low light level/night time conditions, the Canon A-620 pushes ahead.

You have to decide which camera really "matches your normal shooting conditions" the very best. The A-620 is ideally suited to the role of a travel or holiday camera where low light level and night time shooting are minimal or non existant. On the other hand, the E-900 not only covers the travel and holiday roles with a slight loss in dynamic range, but offers some low light level and night time features as well.

Is the fold out LCD on the A-620 a desireable feature for you? If not, the comparison between the two cameras becomes even closer.
