what are the advantages and disadvantages between w5 and w1. which one is the best why?

No major difference between the 2. The W5 is the 2005 Model. I read the battery last slightly longer, and the 2.5" Screen has slightly lower resolution. If the the Choice were the W1 or W5 I would probably then base it it on which one is cheaper. I'm sure you'd be able to get a much better deal on the W1 since it's last years model. I'm happy with my W1 & it doesn't bother me one bit that I bought last years model, the camera works great.

Having held both, I find the W1 seems to have a better finish & materials. (The Aluminium plate on the front I find gives a better finish)

This is a very subjective issue.

yep, can confirm on that one. Owned a W12 (a merely black version of the W1) that got lost on my last trip, bought the W5 as a replacement. Although the W5 feels and looks good, the W12 was slightly better in that respect.

On the other hand, there are minor improvements in the menus that make it slightly easier to use. Just buy the one that's cheaper...
