I'm looking to buy a new point and shoot to replace my Nikon CoolPix 4800. I got the 4800 for it's 8.3x Optical zoom a few years ago and it's woefully out of date. I have been very disappointed with its low-light picture taking ability, and I can't keep still enough to use the maximum zoom level anyway.

For my next camera, I'm thinking it's more important to get a larger sensor than to worry about the optical zoom. I'm looking at the Sony DSC-T100 and the DSC-W200. Both have image stabilization in the lens (which I'm hoping will help to remedy my low-light problem). The W200 has less optical zoom and a worse macro focus range. However, I feel its larger sensor (better aperature range) will probably result in better pictures than the T100 can provide. The T100 has a 1/2.5" sensor as does my current CoolPix 4800.

Does anyone agree/disagree? Or recommend a different suggestion?

Better pictures under what conditions?
