Well, I just went out and got a P150 today, now I can actually compare them against eachother taking the same pic's on the same tripod. So far my guess is that they will be almost identical. If you have any specific tests you want me to perform, let me know...

1st test here is differences in resolution between 5MP and 7MP. Not very much in my opinion... 100% crop of both images. P100 1st...

I'm thinking about dumping (returning) my W1 for a 100 or 150. You may be able to answer some questions I had, for instance: the P150 came out five months or so after the P100, and Steve's review highlights software and processing that allows for faster start up and picture taking -- is that your experience? Is the 150 worth the extra money (assuming you don't need the extra megapixels)?

Thanks for the comparison post...

John.

From all the tests I've performed between the P100 and P150, except form the slight detail increase in the P150, both cameras are identical in every way. I didn't notice any difference in flash performance, start-up time, auto shutter speedor shutter lag time. The ONLY differences are the large macro, flash and self-timer icons on the P150, the brushed aluminum trim on the P150 and the extra megapixel which increases the resolution a slight bit. Since these two cameras are so identical, I will be putting one of them up for auction on ebay and saving some cash for the upcoming V3!

It's a hobby and the only thing I've spent money on lately, so it's not that bad. Plus I usually get really good deals on the cams I buy.
