I loved my old S4i, it fit in an Altoids can, weighed nothing and was always with me...just not enough megapixels. When it was stolen in Costa Rica I tried the Casio Z1000. It wasn't forgiving of my tendency to shoot on the fly. I got an optio A20. It's OK...but the little plastic tab that holds the battery in place broke and because of warranty, I have a chance to just get the money back and buy another camera. I REALLY miss the optical viewfinder on my S4i. (Don't these manufacturers EVER test outside?? That great big LCD screen is totally useless in bright light!)

I have figured out that the Optio W stands for "waterproof"....but waht's M, A, V, S and all the other letters signify? Should I wait for he A40? Does anything else have the anti-shake, extremely small size and oteh rfeatures I like for my pocket??
