These come straight from a real Kodak representative.
First are the sensor sizes and lens specs.

P850:
CCD Imager:
7.17mm (diagonal) overall CCD size; 2.2 micron square pixels

Lens:
Actual focal length: 6.0 to 72mm
11 elements in 9 groups with 3 aspherical surfaces.

P880:
CCD Imager:
9.126mm (diagonal) overall CCD size; 2.225 micron square pixels

Lens:
Actual focal length: 5.04 to 29.38mm
13 elements in 9 groups with 2 aspherical surfaces.

For translation, the P880 sensor lies somewhere between a 1/1.8" and a 2/3". I'd bank on it being a 1/1.7" by those standards.

This is ISO:

P850:
AUTO mode: 50 - 400 (selected by camera)
P,A,S,M,C modes: 50/64/80/100/125/160/200/250/320/400 selectable by user.
ISO 800 can also be selected, but only in the lowest image size setting of 1280x960 (1.2MP)

P880:
In 8.0/7.1/5.0/3.1 MP image size:
AUTO mode: 50 -160 (selected by camera)
P,A,S,M,C modes: 50/100/200/400 selectable by user.

In 0.8 MP image size ONLY:
AUTO mode: 400-1200 (selected by camera)
P,A,S,M,C modes: 400/800/1600 selectable by user.

This is all I have for now. Hope this helps.

Thank You Very Much, Rex-

That really does help a lot. That might be a powerful combination for the P-880. However, some reviews have noted softness in the image from other Schneider lenses. This will essentially be a new lens, we will have to watch closely as to how it fares in the reviews.

Oh yes we'll have to watch ever so close to see what the reviewers have to say. I can't do anything without a reviewer guiding me along my landscape of veiw finding

There's only one fixed-lens digital camera that goes as wide, the Nikon 8400, and that camera only goes to 85mm at the long end. Plus Nikon doesn't seem to be too enthusiastic about them; I never see them in stores. There are rumors that Nikon will discontinue its high-end point and shoots to avoid competing with their DSLRs, too.

Seems to have a very nice set of manual controls.
