Default Need some help, asap

Hey guys,

I've been deciding between the DSC-V1 and the DSC-T1 for the last couple of weeks. I need a multipurpose camera to take pictures at family gatherings, places of interest when I go on vacations, etc. Now which one would be more suitable? I liked the T1 because it looked good, and it was compact. But I don't know, many of the people in the forums are more experienced, plus you know what you're talking about.

I've read the threads here and to be honest, many people have been saying the T1 just doesn't cut it. Not many threads on the V1 but it's been good news.
I don't have much experience in photography, total newbie, you could say, but I would like to learn more so what would be a decent starter camera?

I've also heard rumors about V2 and all that. Should I wait for something like that? Or just go ahead with the current batch of cameras on the market? Help would really be appreciated.

Between those two I'd take the V1. The T1 is "cute" but... no optical viewfinder is a big negative in my book. The V1 is more like a regular camera vs a pocket gadget. Just my 2¢ worth.
