Not to get this thread away from the topic, but I placed an order today for the competing Sony H1. I've been tossing around the idea of cameras for a long time, looking at options varying from a Nikon D50 to a Coolpix 5400. I ended up deciding not to spend the money for a DSLR and lenses (yet) and wanted a zoom, which the 5400 lacked (despite it being a very cool cam). It might be here Friday. Here's hoping!
