I do like the idea of the A55 being able to use the special autofocus in burst mode.....
Try online.....Ritz Camera for example.

Tom, I have used Ritz before (my Minolta) but want to hold them...just to get a feel for them.

I do think there is Ritz in N. VA.

Most Best Buys I've been in usually have an A55 or at least the A35 or A33 so if there's another one nearby you might give a call and see if they carry one or the other. If I recall correctly the A380 has a smaller grip than the A55 but it's been awhile since I've seen one. The A580 may be a little more difficult - I've seen it in higher end electronic stores and camera shops and maybe Ritz would have one but I'd call the store first.

If the a380 felt ok you'll probably be fine with either camera but it is nice to hold them if you can.
