    Sharpness? Well.. that issue is moot (Unless you believe someone whom mentioned that just by using his F5, no matter how lousily the picture was taken, it would still come out great )

    Anyhow, as for night shots.. try A40. Don't get the C700.. has inherent issues for night shots...

    Cheers!

    for C700, night shoot would usually require a longer exposure and well, for C700 itself, any prolonged exposure would have alot of noise...

    Hope this helps.
