Maybe the DSC-F939 won't be named like that but DSC-R1...

But only a 5X zoom where as the F828 had a 7X zoom? And the Panasonic FZ30 has a 12X zoom!!! I won't consider it because of the 5X zoom.... that's pitiful. :-( I'd rather have the better zoom than two more megapixels.

Nothing personal, as your view is shared by many (particularly over at DPreview) but I'd argue with "better" - longer sure but certainly less sharp & more aberations. Also, I don't think anyone's excited about 2 more MP but rather, the improved quality from the larger sensor.

Personally (and I most sincerely own this view), I've not been impressed by all the manufacturers striving to get more & more pixels onto smaller chips along with longer & longer zooms - resulting in poorer & poorer final images.

Thankyou Sony, this should be just the job (for my needs).
