I wanted to know whether there is any difference in photography between p520 and l820 or its simply of some extra features which do not affect the quality of a photo like a viewfinder or extra zoom!??

Thanks for pointing that out, that was a typo. We will have that fixed up soon.

I think you have the L820 ISO listed wrong... its not 320... it is 3200.
