It may come down to brand preference and card prices.

The Sony uses more costly memory sticks as opposed to the Canon using SD cards which have had lower prices, especially in places like Sam's Club or Costco. For those who already have one or the other of those types of cards already bought up, this may be a deciding factor.

For others it will be brand loyalty. Sony people are known for being devoted, as are Canon people. Even if one of the models is only marginally better than the other, I doubt either "side" will defect to the other for it.

Panasonic will win

out of those two Canon has a clear edge because of optical stabilizer. without it ultrazoom looses 2/3 of its usefulness. However, S1 IS was rather poor in terms ofimage quality, so..

The sony has image stabilisation as well. I like the features of the Canon, but image quality will be the real test and the Leica lens on the Panasonic Lumix cameras will be hard to beat. We're just going to have to wait for the reviews.
