Hi, I have had a Fuji Finepix 1400 for over 2 years and am ready to upgrade to a much more capable camera. I have been looking at the Sony DSC 717, but I am unable to try it out where I live(Sears will not put a battery in their showroom model). I have read reviews and everything and they seem positive, but I wanted to know if the 717 was that good. Also are there other cameras that are comparable? Please help. I didn't find the right solution from the Internet. References:- https://arstechnica.com/civis/viewtopic.php?f=6&t=748091 Thanks!
