I'm in the market for a new, small cmaera for an upcoming trip in November ...saw the link for $399 ...holy cr*d thats cheap ...but still, I can't pull the trigger ...I would almost pay a hundred more, and may, for the new P7700

paying $100 more for a P7700 P&S is the single most ridiculous buying decision a man can make.

Oh, hardly.

The N1 isn't small by any means. (P7700 isn't tiny, but a bit more portable). P7700 offers the articulating LCD and a faster lens that makes up for the sensor size, at least in terms of DOF and low light (maybe not in terms of absolute image quality). And it has better external controls.

The V1 offers tremendous value right now. But a great value is still money wasted if it's something you don't really want.
