Re: S5 or S1

I went from the G9 to the S5 and it was a very easy transitiion.  To me the size of the camera was important.  The S5 is the same size and basically the same configuration and menu system.  The lenses are larger but still very comfortable.  I did recently buy the 70-300 to use at my granddaughter's Lacrosse games.  It is considered a small FF telephoto but it is large.  The S1 was just too large for me to consider.  I do not enjoy lugging a large camera with a large lens.  I am very happy with the S5.  The files are wonderful in PP, the high ISO is unbelievable to me after using m43 for 10 years.  I think that you will be happier with the S5.
