Divya-

Both of your camera choices are brand new. http://www.imagingresource.com just came out this week with a review of the Sony W-170. I have not been able find a professional review anywhere on the Olympus Stylus 1010. Just looking at the specs on paper. it would appear that the Stylus 1010 has a leg up with added optical zoom.

However, after reading the W-170 review, even though the the W-170 has 5X optical zoom, it offers a DRO (Dynamic Range Optimizer) that would also be very valuable. IMHO, I would opt for the Sony W-170, or wait to see a professional review of the Stylus 1010. You see, Olympus' record with digicams lately has been sort of plain vanilla.
