I think the best thing you could do is read through the forums for each camera and see what people who have bought these cameras think of them. :-)

Your question is akin to "which should I buy: a Toyota Tundra pickup, a Jaguar XK8 sports car or a Lincoln Explorer SUV?" You have everything from superzooms to pocket cameras and new releases to cameras approaching 2 years old. All of the cameras you listed are good.

I prefer the S1 to the Z2 or 770. Stabilization makes a big difference in being able to use a superzoom in more situations without a tripod. You lose a Mp though. If 4Mp suits your needs better than 3 you might also consider the Panasonic FZ10 in the superzoom category.

I like the features and large f stop of the G5. It and the Sony 717 give you a faster lens. They won't fit in your pocket like the W1. The Vi is about as small a camera as you are going to find with a hot shoe. It has relatively fast release times and will fit into big pockets.

The W1 is a nice pocket camera with a really nice LCD. The Minolta G500 is also good and a bargain, but without the nice movies or large LCD. Besides the W1, the S1 and V1 give excellent movies for a still camera if you are interested in that.

You need to determine whether you want a pocket camera, a superzoom, low light capability etc.

Try the Minolta A2. Best of the 8 megapixel cams. Also minolta cameras tend to be fairly ergnonomic with well written manuals.

The best camera is the one that gets the most use.
