Looking for a decent camera for $400 or so. Sony comparisons?

    I need a digital camera. I have purchased (and returned) a number of
    pocket size cameras (Pentax Optio-60, Canon A520, HP707, Kodak Z760)
    While I like the size, I wasn't satisfied with the picture quality. I
    think I need a better lense. I like the sony cameras and I have
    looked at the DSC-H1. Seems like a pretty nice camera but I haven't
    had an opportunity to test it well. I have an opportunity to buy a
    second hand DSC-F717 for about $375. Spent the day with it and it
    seems pretty nice.

    I really like some of the low light focus features on the F717 and
    from what I have read, the Ziess lense is pretty good. Also battery
    life seems unbelievable compared to others.

    Can anyone offer any comparison between the H1 and a F717, or
    otherwise offer any advice?

    Thanks for the info. I gues what I was really concerned with was the
    fact that the F717 was a few years old. Knowing how technology
    changes with the times, I was wondering if the reviews I have been
    reading were relevant today. They sound great but for all I know,
    the F717 could be a total junk compared to the H1.

    There are just so many cameras out there it's tough to decide.
