    You can't possibly go wrong with either cam, each have their strengths and weaknesses.. it all depends on whether you are willing to fork out more $$ for the swivel lcd (S2) or use proprietary memory cards (H1).

    Or you want to wait and look at the upcoming S3 and H5/H2 models instead?

    can see you're looking for a megazoom... if you wait for the IT show you have 3 selections...

    Sony : H2 & H5
    Panasonic : FZ7
    Canon : S3 1S

    and if you decide not to wait...

    Sony : H1
    Panasonic : FZ5 & FZ30
    Canon : S2 IS

    my 2cents on the matter

    I guess these new models will only come out around May and won't be available in the IT Show.. Well, at least for the H2/H5.

    I recommend Canon PowerShot S3 IS.
    Canon EOS 5D, 24-70 f/4 L IS, 50 f/1.2 L, 70-300 f/4-5.6 L IS, 600EX-RT. Sigma 12-24 f/4.5-5.6 EX.

    I would take the Canon as I find that their software is pretty user friendly. Their Powershot series is also value for $$.

    R1's too costly. Might as well buy a 350D with this price.

    ah...thanks man.
    maybe when drop a bit more, become very good value.
    this is really good cam, if you don't intend to change lens. only problem is that i think accessories such as flash and filter may cost more? or maybe R1 is compatible with 3rd party accessories, if so then good buy.

    Yes...Sony cams are touted to have very nice image quality but it's overpriced for that range.
