Just wanted to let you know that i just went with the W1 yesterday and i couldn't be happier.
The large LCD is just amazing and the camera is so fast in operation. I'm very happy with the quality of the images and how the camera operates and the menus and setup are just a breeze to operate.
Only negative thing so far is the long charging time of the batteries, but not such a big deal since you can just pop in a couple of Alkaline AA's or buy a faster charger.
All in all, i am exremely happy with my purchase and would like to thank everyone for their input.
