Umm, well the higher ISO might be useful for me once or twice a year..

Apart from that not so sure.

H2 has a smaller screen than the H1 which I am so used to.

H2 -> 2.0" 85K TFT LCD Screen

The burst modes don't impress.

H2, 7 shots at 1.3 fps

H5, 5 shots at 1.1 fps



And no hot shoe, no RAW, no ACC port, and no long wanted swivel lcd.

No 2" LCD on H2. 2.5" on H2 and 3" on H5.

CybershotNut , that page you linked to says

..along with the stage-worthy DSC-H2 model, which has a six-megapixel imager and two-inch LCD..



We will have to wait to be sure , but the specifications page at http://www.sony.com/h2 says ..

Capture stunning long-distance images with the Cyber-shot® DSC-H2 digital camera.

6.0 Megapixel Super HAD™ CCD



  • 12X optical zoom lens [/*]
  • 2.0" LCD screen [/*]
  • Super SteadyShot® Optical Image Stabilization [/*]
  • 32MB built-in flash memory
[/*]
[align=left]Also

Large 2.0" LCD Screen:
The DSC-H2 has a bright 2.0" LCD screen for setting up and viewing images --



and in the details on the specifications tab it says

Color LCD: 2.0" 85K TFT LCD Screen


You can see the specs (which may be wrong..) at

http://www.sony.com/h2 and http://www.sony.com/h5

I think I'll just hang on to my H1 because it works very well and Sony didn't add a hot shoe or a place for a remote comtrol. Not sure if the H2 and H5 would be any better. Besides I have too many Sony cameras now anyway.

Since you have too many Sony cameras, would you please tell me how you rate their lens and pictures quality? I have a 1.3 MP Sony DC and a 5.1 MP Fuji E-510 and a 9 MP Fuji S9000, the pictures on my Sony looks lots better than the two Fuji's at 4x6 print, sharp, rich color (all at normal settings). I want to buy the H5 when it is available.

Thanks

I'm also not too impressed with the new models. I love my H1 and I don't think the H2/H5 will make it obsolete any time soon. The only real improvementwould be the Carl Zeiss lens (and I'm not sure this is an accurate statementsince the H1 has a great lens). Other than that, I'drather thatthey added afester lens than a higher ISO.

In my opinion, you love your H1,yes...but you will love the H2 more when you have it, same thing happen when you got the H5...and so far...the R1 still is the best.
Long time ago, I bought a Toshiba 3 MP after 1 hour learning how to use it I had to changes 3 sets of battery => returned it. Next one is 4 MP Minolta dimage, happy with it for 1/2 year, when my son bought the sony cybershot DSC-P10, I was surprice because it smaller but much much better, next is the DSC-P150 again much much better...next SLR Olympus E500 happy for 1 day only because changing lens very complicated also only the automatic function work good...the lens 5.6 not 3.5 cannot compare with the carl-zeiss 2.8...will return it soon...The R1 still keep it price at $900 but still worth it...the H5 12X optical and steadyshot stabilization $500 also is my choice too...June will comming soon ....:-)
