Less than 1 Mpx is not important, is most important the fact that the two cameras (a75 and A85) have the same sensor, but with 1 mpx more there will be more noise..
To have an idea of the quality of the A75 pictures you can look at my site: www.zoodany.it , all the pics are taken with the Canon A75..

I just ordered one of the few A80's left (discontinued) and would also LOVE to know before I get and open it if the A85 is significantly better??? Help!?!?! The price seems comparable--about $300. Canon claims in an email to me that the A85 is replacing the A80, but everything else I read seems to say the A85 is following up on the A75?

I just ordered one of the last A80's too! Unfortunately, a lot of the pixels on the LCD were bad, but it didn't affect the actual pictures. I was very impressed with A80, and will buy the A95 soon (as soon as I get the refund). As I understand it, the A85 is a replacement for the A75 and the A95 is a replacement for the A80. I don't have any experience w/ A75 or A85, but can vouch for the A80; it's a great camera! I'm looking forward to my A95.

Actually in an email from Canon it says the sensor in the A85 is a new sensor albeit the same size as the A75. It also said it is capable of handling the extra pixels.

i wonder how bad the purple fringing is compared to the a95. i'm new to this, so i wonder if this gets better with the bigger ccd of the a95 or if it gets worse due to the higher resolution.

i'd also like to know how you remove this (apart from the higher f-value). is there a good program that can remove this effect afterwards without touching the rest of the picture?
