I currently have a Sony-W5, and i for the most part, love it. But its a little to hefty for me, and wanna go a tad smaller, plus i really liked the new Sony-N1. A lot of people are telling me though that the pictures for the 8.1 megapixel wouldnt be any better than my 5.1 Megapixel W5, and it will have even less features. Im hoping this isnt true? :?

How often do you use the manual exposure on your W5? If you don't use it much I would think the N1 would be a good camera. Reviews like the image quality and high ISO noise on the N1. The 3 inch touch screen looks like a nice feature, and it is quite high in resolution. It is the only small camera I've seen that I would likely use the flex focus since you just have to touch the focus spot on the screen. I would think navigating menus would be a lot faster.

Do you often make large prints or crop a lot so your current 5Mp seems a limitation? Many people wouldn't benefit from the extra Mp. I have a large format printer and would like the extra pixels, but you might not find that an advantage.
