Goodbye Sony, Hello Samsung

I've been using a compact Sony DSC-T9 for over a year now and it works well. It's very nice, with a slim body, 2.5" LCD, 6 megapixel resolution and VGA video capture. My only complaint is the piddling 3X optical zoom it offers.

Well, Samsung have just announced the L77, which is equivalently compact, also with a 2.5 inch LCD, and a slightly better resolution of 7.1 megapixels. But, the deal clincher is its 7X internal optical zoom!

Admittedly, it doesn't look quite as sexy as the Sony and we probably won't see it in stores for a little while yet, but it still has me drooling.
