HX5V Availability in U.S.
Mar 1, 2010

Any new information on the release of the HX5V?? The Sony press releases state that the camera will ship in March but when in March? I have one on pre-order through Amazon.com. I planned to take it on an overseas trip starting on April 4th and hoped to get the camera to play with before the trip.

The TX7 seems to be my best backup since it is available now. However, I would prefer the HX5V because of its longer zoom range and the inclusion of a wider ranging IS that might be useful when taking video while walking.

I have a Canon XTi with a Tamron 18-250 zoom but decided for this trip that I don't want to deal with the weight and bulk associated with this sort of equipment.

Any info that one has and could share would be appreciated.
