I own both the Sony HX5v and the Canon SX230HS. The HX5 has a 25mm equivalent
wide angle, but its 10x zoom made me want more reach. I also own a Canon SX110,

and its image detail and color are superior to that of the HX5. Sony didn't resolve
the IQ issue with the HX9. You can see this for yourself by reading posts on
the Sony forum in DPR. The IQ issue plus Cannon's remarkable self timer led
me back to Canon. If you compare user reviews on Amazon you'll see that
the SX230 is rated slightly ahead of the HX9.

Merry Christmas to all, and a prayer for peace on earth.
