I've got a P-100 and I'm very happy with it. Should I upgrade to the P-200? Are the 7 mega pixels that useful? Or should I wait for the next model?

Thanks for your answer...

I would think it depends on whether the resolution of the P100 is limiting your options during printing or post processing the pictures. If you like to crop heavily and/or make large prints then it might be a useful upgrade. Otherwise, I don't think the picture quality of the P200 compared to the P100 is that much better to justify the swap.

I would not upgrade from P100 to P200, the extra 2Mp is not that big of a deal. I actually shoot 5MP on the P200 and compare it, its not that much.

Only time I use is to shoot without zoom (bigger apperture) on available light with iso400, crop it later.

... only if you need to make LARGE prints, or if you want to crop in close and then make a large print.

The best difference between the two is the protected LCD screen on the P200. You'd be amazed how many P100s and P150s I get with smashed LCD screens.
