Default Nikon Coolpix 5400 Vs 5000 ?

Anybody got any knowledge on how much of an improvement the 5400 will have over the 5000 ? For example, autofocus speed, and low light exposure and focus? What kind of distortion do the 5400 and 5000 have at the 28mm end? Is the 5400 a minor or a major evolution over the 5000?

I saw 5400 at Ritz, body feel very wonderful, compact and solid.
focus speed is a little bit better(not much). You can check it out youself.

Smaller LCD screen, 1.5" instead of 1.8"
Still no TTL flash, flash sensor is still on the hand grip for auto flash function.
Better optic since ED glass now incl in the zoom lens

uhh, lets see what i can remember here...

5000- around 1.2% barrel distortion at wide angle
chromatic aberrations are easily visible on 5000
5000 also has trouble focusing in low light

as for the 5400, i dont quite know, as full reviews for the camera have not been posted yet everywhere ive checked, unless i missed something, and i have not seen the camera at any stores yet (i didn't even know it was out yet, is it?)
