HX5v or HX7v ??? (just 50€ difference)

Hello all,

I am to buy a compact P&S as a complement to my DSLR.

As this new P&S won't be my main camera, I don't expect superb IQ, I just want it to be:

  • Pocketable (Hx5v & Hx7v are the max size I want)

  • To be great fun (with loads of nice features)

  • To have nice IQ (for small prints and view on screen) mainly in low light (as I will mainly use for nights out, parties, etc...)

  • To have nice video

I think both the HX5v and HX7v meet my requirements, and I was going to buy the Hx5v, but I just saw that I can get the Hx7v for just 50€ more...

My question is... do you guys think that the Hx7v is worth those 50€ extra ?

I don't expect the IQ of the HX7v to be better than the Hx5v for having so many MPx in the tiny sensor, but I would be happy with the IQ being at least the same. What I like about the Hx7v are the new features (better HDR, HR panorama, better placed mics, better screen)

Also, do you think that the audio quality of the Hx7v videos is better than the Hx5v ?

Thanks very much for your info
