Re: I am not sleeping yet

A sensor with a 5.0 µm pixel pitch doesn't need a fantastic lens, so even if they put a half decent lens in there it should be sharp.

A 1.5mp sensor will be more than enough in a P&S. I did an 11x16
macro from low res on my SD9 (.7mp) and it wasn't all that bad. I
sold my Minolta D7 a month ago so I will be on the hunt for a good
P&S. Of course all the other parts of the DC have to come
together - lens, lcd etc etc. Let's hope!
