A640 is more of a low-end model... G7 is more of a prosumer. They have different purposes and target different markets, really.

If u are asking about specifications, you can look at http://www.dpreview.com/reviews/specs/Canon/.

Image quality I cant really advise, there is only a review for the prosumer G7. As for A640, I dont tink there will be any reviews for it. Best if u try the cameras out yourself.

If not, compare the digital conversion eng, lens coating and megapixel?

Hope this helps.

G7 & A640 have been replaced by G9 & A650IS recently.

www.dpreview.com has a full review of the A640, G7, G9, and S5 IS, the last 3 are prosumers:
A640
G7
G9
S5_IS

www.dcresource.com also has full reviews of A640, G7, G9 and S5 IS
A640
G7
G9
S5_IS

Do a comparison of what the reviewers say about the cameras, go to the shops and try them out and then decide which is the best camera for you.
