Hi,

I am sorry for asking for help as many other do, but I have been reading forums all around the web, watching thousand of samples photo of this two cam and I can't make a choice

I would like to buy a new cam and I am thinking about one of these:

- Nikon Coolpix 5200
Great sample on http://www.pbase.com/legalbean/nikon_4200


- Sony DSC-W1
Great samples on http://www.pbase.com/zeusho/sony_w1_photos

Until Iheardabout that Sony I wasgoing to bought the Nikon one, but the resseller told me the Sony was less expensiveand better...

I find both very nice and I read Steve's Review and as the samples I posted here, both are making very good photos... Maybe you may be able to tell me the difference I may expect from these two cam since you tested them ?

Sodoes anyone have any recommendation ? Maybe any happy owner of a Nikon Coolpix 5200 orSony DSC-W1

Thanks for your help, and congrats for this very intresting and great site.

Cheers

I went throught the same decision several months ago between the 5400 and the Sony V1. I'm a hardcore Nikon fan and it was a difficult decision. I ended up going with the V1 and have been extremely happy with it. The W1 picture quality is quite similar to the V1, although, the lens on the V1 seems better to many. Still the W1 has done very well in reviews. My advise is to look at as many reviews as you can. Steve's reviews are excellent and played a part in my decision. I would alos look at http://www.dpreview.comand see what they say about both cameras. Good luck with your decision !

Thanks for your answer, I have already read the dpreview.com reviews LOL

Whatever the choice I do, I am sure I will be happy with it anyway... But it's always hard to make the decision... There is too much choice

If you're looking for a happy owner of a 5200 you've found one here. There are also several happy owners of Sony's too, though!
