    The Canon A-85 is not yet generally available in N. America, but appears to be
    on sale in some other parts of the world. It is an "upgrade" for the A-75.

    From looking at Canon's Japan web site it seems that the ONLY difference
    between the two cameras is the 4 Mpixel CCD -- but same physical size.

    (I am ignoring the increased DIGITAL zoom magnification of 3.6x).

    Surely there must be *something* else different!

    Anyone have any information on this?
    How do the prices compare?

    Continuous drive is faster on the A85 (2.2 vs 1.5 photos per second.

    For the rest ... you are right.
