The Canon G3 and Olympus C-750UZ are 4mp and cost around $800+ - $900.
Sony DSC-V1 I believe costs $1000+, and is 5mp. It would be more fair to compare the DSC-V1 with the Canon G5 and Olympus C-5050 instead. All 5mp. I believe there's a very good promotion on for the Olympus C-5050 going on now. $1200+ full package, plus teleconverter, wide converter and tripod and some more free gifts. Very useful if you ask me. Good deal. C-5050 also has a fast f1.8 lens, and can use different forms of memory. All this coming from a Canon guy. :what:
