I've noticed that the A85 is about $100 cheaper. The only differences I can tell is the A95 is 5mp w/ a swivel LCD, and the A85 is 4mp w/ a standard LCD. Is there anything else that differentiates the two? Do you consider the extra $100 worth it?

Just curious. Thanks!

At 150 dpi, a 4mp image will produce a print 2309 pixels by 1732 pixels or 15.39 inches by 11.5 inches
At 150 dpi, a 5mp image will produce a print 2582 pixels by 1936 pixels or 17.21 inches by 12.91 inches.

It is entirely your choice as to whether the extra 2 inches of width and 1.5 of height, representing an increase of 10.6% width and 11% height at a low 150dpi resolution is worth the extra $100.

At higher resolutions, the increase in megapixels will be fairly negligable.
