Re: S5 or S1

I agonized over buying the S5 but I could not resist the pre order offer.  My thinking was that the S5 is the same size as the G9 and the menu system is basically the same.  It took several months for it to be delivered and I had a bad case of buyers remorse.  I absolutely love the S5 it is my G9 but even better.  Beautiful colors, same great ergonomics, the new lenses are smaller than the first Panny FF lenses.  I just got the 70-300 and it is heavy to me.  I want to use it to take Lacrosse pictures and will use a monopod with it.  For me, the S1 is just too big and was never a choice.
