Default Which of these two compact buy it?

Hello people, are to escape these two cameras: the Sony Cyber-shot DSC-HX5V and DSC-TX7 the two 10mpx. At the moment I have a DSC-T900 from 12mpx which is a tit.
See links:

http://www.sonystyle.com/webapp/wcs/...77169#features

The TX7 is a tit as mine, but the other (HX5) has 10x optical (apart from Sony G lens) 4x against this, but the same angle 25mm. Gps have not so I can serve except to see the pictures on the pc. There are other new Sony models with 14mpx but these two interest me because they recorded in 1080. Nor do I understand why these are 10 and 14mpx not like the others.

Thanks

the HX5 is the better camera, with its silent focusing 10x G lens.

I agree, Hards-

If the HX-5 reviews well it will surely be a contender against the likes of the Panasonic ZS-3 and perhaps, even the Canon S-90. The HX-5 is virtually the same size as the S-90 and offers 25 to 300mm zoom which is surely an attraction.

It will be a camera that I will follow through its introduction and the first professional reviews. Have a great day.

Thank you for answering the truth do not really like the quality of pictures from my T900, the battery does not last long, but I like the screen and the subject has to focus with a tap. Taking the theme of the zoom, the H5X would take better pictures? the angle of the lens is the same, because they would take better? It also interests me is not much bigger and aesthetics.
I forgot something, for having served gps? just to see where you take pictures? or also to navigate a city?
Thanks I'm on the subject of the cameras.

ciro-

We really won't know all the details until the PMA show opens, as that is where the HX-5 is scheduled to be introduced. So hang on for further details.

Have a great day.

i am looking forward to this camera as well. if they can get the exmor sensor technology right, it could be an exciting camera. i am glad they went with a conservative 10mp sensor as well. seems to be built with the photographer in mind, hopefully it will live up to the hype and not cost too much.

The suggested MSRP on the Sony HX-5 is $349.95.

It is a very good price, I hope to decide. Before I had to choose between the W290 and T900 ...

Ciro-

I think that the HX-5 with be worth the 30 to 45 days wait. At least, I sincerely hope so!

Sorry to be heavy, have no idea if the GPS function only serves to show where I take the photo or have another function like a car GPS?
Thanks
