I thought my Olympus Camedia C-5050 Zoom does use a 1/1.8 inch
sensor size and does offer 5MP!

Good point - missed that one. Unfortunately it does seem to pay a price in noise. At ISO 100 it ends up with twice the noise of the f717. Phil's comment from the summary:

"Noise levels higher than the competition, especially unexpected at ISO 64"
