I expect a slight increase in image quality compared to the SD1, and about the same resolution as the sdQ.

Usability at various ISO settings is not a cut-and-dried thing, but there could be an improvement of as much as a whole stop in noise levels. So it might be quite good at ISO 800, which is 3 stops of underexposure, at least in images that don't need much shadow detail.

If you want to shoot at ISO 3200 or even higher, in colour, the fp is the camera to use.

The big step forward will be being able to use adapters for classic lenses.

I suppose it's too much to hope for a tilting LCD for low level work and waist-level portraits.
