I owned the F505V before....

Pros:
Extremely sharp lens
Large bright and clear LCD display
Great performer under low light

Cons:
Battery life stinks
Poor power adapter design
No viewfinder

The F505 series design looks much better than the canon definitely. At $300, its a steal. Just remember to check the battery life (see if it still hold charges)

Although I'm a sony user, i'lll recommend you get the S1. Newer technology, faster focusing and better results.. The 505 is also only 2MP compared to the S1 which is 3MP.
