Thanks for the advice!
I received the cameras this morning from Amazon and they are like for like construction wise.
Ive been playing around with both and made a decision to go for the F70EXR. The 10x zoom is a nice addition and the buttons are slightly easier to navigate the menus etc.
Pro Portrait mode and Pro low light mode are actually a useful tool. Picture quality is around the same to the untrained eye. The .3" difference in screen size aint no biggy either. As discussed at length arould the net the EXR Auto mode is sometimes to uick to jup straight to ISO1600 resulting in noisy noisy pics. But hey its a compact!
The weight of this little camera is quite amazing reflecting the build quality of it. It really is a joy to hold and use, really feels solid.
Im still confused about the sensor sizes though. Ive came to te conclusion that the sensor on te F200 must be 1/2.6" as opposed to 1/ 1.6". Surely a sensor on a compact is not over an inch????!
EDIT: Just had a look on another site and indeed the sensor is just over an inch across the diagonal!!
So, decision made Chris and thanks again for your input, as always (Im sure a lot of Forum users would agree) its much appreciated. All the best.
