Re: Buy the HX20 or wait for newer cameras?

I have the HX20 and the WX150. The WX150 I take jogging because I really want the lower weight (I have taken it out for over 1000 miles now). But the WX150 does not have as good of image quality as the HX20, I think probably because to keep the weight down the lens has fewer glass elements and smaller overall size. I would expect the same thing with the WX300 -- that it will not equal the image quality of the HX20. I am quite likely to buy the WX300 however, because there are situations when I am out jogging when I would like to have the 20X instead of the 10X I have with the WX150.
