I'm not sure about these models so just give my 2 penny worth...
Things i also took note when getting my DC were:
-wad type of battery? some prefer AA some prefer proprietrary...
-type of media? eg. if you have other memory stick devices, can consider sony...
-wad do you wan to take with? for me, i like macro shots so i look for one with the least macro distance.
-weight and size?
-i like the remote control too...

and of course the usual technicalities etc...
anyway again... just my 2 cents ...
have a good weekend!

battery doesn't matter to me.
memory stick or CF doesn't matter to me.
size and weight is of minimal issue.
I want a camera that captures the moment as true to life as possible.
Macro is important too... although the macro distance is the furthest for minolta, I got a feeling the tele-macro function will still give the same amount of magnification as the other 2.
hmm.. it's still anybody's game....
