I am about to make my purchase. I really want a 3mp or higher camera with a big screen and a 640X480 30fps movie mode. These are the only 2 cameras so far that I have seen that satifsy all my criteria. They both have their strong/weak points, so I'm wondering what others think. I know the w1 is hot right now, but i haven't seen much on the F7000 other than some really good reviews from steve and a few others. Here's what I think so far:

Both have similar screens (same size)

both have gigh quality movie mode

one uses memory stick pro, the other xD-which are both currently similar in price

the Sony is more expensive ($350 vs $290)

Sony is 5mp vs the Fuji's 3mp

Sony uses standard AA size batteries, and comes with a charger

Fuji includes a dock to handle charging and downloading pics

So they both have a few things that the other doesnt. Or if I wanted to ditch the movie mode, then the Kyocera Finecam L3V is available for only $200 with a 128mb SD card. It has the big screen and is 3mp, just has a lame small movie mode. Am I missing any other options?
