Just Got V1 Bought Sight Unseen
8) I just got my V1 last night. I have no idea about picture quality, since I am still playing with the controls. I can say (after 5 digicams and a D-60 outift), in terms of features packed into an incredibly tiny package, Sony has a winner here (and it's my first Sony). Of course, for many single-camera, big-handed shooters, it may be too small. Whether the output ends up matching a G5 or CP5400 or not, this is a gem.
For really serious stuff, I'll still go with my 5700, or the G5 I intend to buy, but I can stick this 5MP-2X-hotshoe-polarizable gem in my jacket pocket. Heck, I'll even put up with the Memory Stick.
