Nice, this one may be a good improvement over the T1, T11, T3, T33. It looks like the flash is bigger and further away from the lens. It's toobad the widest aperture is still f3.5...

Notice how the body is thicker at the lens area and downward? From the front view, it lookslike they found a way to make the rest of the camera body slimmer :-)

The tragedy is most new pocketable cameras are going the wrong direction in terms of optics/sensors. They have smaller CCD sensors (currently 1/2.4" and shrinking), making them less sensitive to light. Coupled with the smaller lens assemblyin the T series,these cameras become very unsuitable for low-light indoor situations beyond the 2-3m flash range. Considering the small battery and tiny flash,it would need major flash improvements to obtain significant gains.

:idea:Sony should look into putting more sensitive sensors to bring the f-stop back to about 2.0 :!:

I love that it's so slim, but......I hate that the T-Series have such small sensors. It's as bad as the new DSC-H1 that is said to have a 1/2.5" sensor!! Terrible for a 5MP???!!!
