    Canon Powershot A80 or A85?

    These cameras are about the same price at the moment. Which one is best for overall picture quality? I see the new A85 has a larger display, but I am more interested in picture quality.

    A85 Out Yet?

    Is the A85 actually available yet? You're in Cornwall, England? I am aware of the camera but can't find anything about it on any US retail site or the Canon USA Web site. Just from other stuff they've recently introduced I would guess the image quality will be the same. I don't know for sure, but the sensor is probably exactly the same as the CCD in the A80. Processing might be a little different, speed might be better, and the lens might be different. Canon does have a five megapixel sensor now, so it's possible that was used for the A85. But with then G-series, most people actually liked the 4 megapixel CCD better than the 5 megapixel sensor in the G5.

    Anyone else know anything? If the camera is listed on the British site I'll add it to the reviews.
