Default Please help an almost crazy man! THANKS!

Im going for a Canon G5, Sony V1 or F717 ...
Im really gettin nuts... cant choose!!! Ill mostly shoot pictures from family, landscapes, macro of some equipments/engines, travels (so it should be not too bulky).

Im afraid of the F717 to be too much, dont know what word to use... stand out of crowd... that could result on robbery on travels...

Ill give my opinion about those cameras and then ya could coment and say whatever ya fell about them!

G5:
-good size
-battery life
-CF
-swivel LCD
-someone say that it has red eye and chromatic aberration (blue)
-optic viewfinder... better than EVF of F717??

V1:
-really like the sony´s hologram/night shot
-dont know if its too small ....
-like the metal body and lens protection
-really like the VGA option for movies!
-poor battery life

F717
-really like the sony´s hologram/night shot
-Think it might be too bulky...
-too much stand out the crowd
-dont know if the EVF is better than optics
-better zoom
-good battery life


Thanks all for your help

I don't know if the F717 would draw more attention of would-be robbers than the others, but with its unusual appearence it would sure be harder to take candid shots. This is why I like the DSC-U20 so much since it can be used almost invisibly in a crowd (of course, the U20 is not by any stretch in the image quality class of the cameras that you listed).

Given the analysis you have cited for the three candidates, you might be well served by the G5.

My personal choice among the three that you have listed would be the F717, but I have different selection criteria.
