Basically, while the 5050's optics and CCD are more accurate (less red shift and less barrel distortion), F717/828 beat the 5050 in nite photography hands down.
800ISO + Hologram multipoint AF = winner.
Ryan, however, uses flash pretty much in all his pix, and from the looks of it, his flash unit has excellent metering and exposure synch with the camera.

Actually, I have found the Olympus C5050 to be a better camera for low-light situations because the apreture can go as large as f1.8. It also has a Hologram multipoint AF.
My external flash is not dedicated for my camera so I am always re-setting my exopsure settings for certain shots.
