since they pack more mp into the smaller sensor, it causes you to lose detail and sharpness. That is why a 12mp sensor are sharper then a 14mp. That is the rub on the new panasonic zs7 vs the older zs3. The 3 has higher photo image quality. MP is a selling point but it around 12 is where you want to stop with the smaller point and shoot cameras right now. Until the next big break through in sensor design.

can't a newer 14 mp be set to take pictures in eg. 10 mp and then you regain the image quality but retain the 'other' newer technoly ?

Or is that a stupid question ?

PS: So would the TS1 be better than the TS2 ?

Torr-

Since the TX5 has now begun to ship, I would seriously look at the TX5. It has the best specifications.

Bigger megapixel is not always better, a lot of things to consider; lens apperture, CCD/CMOS size (bigger IS better), processor (eg. DIGIC for Canon), etc. Pentax is sand proof, the toughest one is Casio, best overall is Panasonic. Also consider the wider lens coverage (canon and casio tough is not as wide as the others).
