    As u can c from the reviews the A520 resembles closely to the A80 while the A95 is a diff generation. A520 are with flaws in focusing, image noise, while the A95 seems to be perfect.

    A520 came from A85....A95 came from A80....A95 is a older cam than A520, with less optical zoom(3x onli)....uses CF card....4 Batts.....and bigger size than A520.....but A95 got the swivel LCD and higher mega pixel....

    both got its pros and cons.....but if u nt in a hurry, maybe wait see got any new cam replacing A95....

    btw I been using A95 so far and the pic and function was great...no prob yet...

    A95 is a good bet. a510 are budget models.

    Alternatively, u can get a second hand g3 or g5 for the price of a new A95. They win the A95 hands down.

    Get a used DSLR (eg. 300d = kit lens) if $ enough since price has dropped alot these days. U will have less limitation when u go into low light photography.

    Yes, the 2 guards are the real person. They are slim and at least 1.85m tall.
