Got it and made lots of test shots.
Very clear and sharp - good color - photos - little more noise than canon G6 but sharper.
Nightshots are very bright - little noisy.
Perfect macro (could see the atoms in my flowers leaves) - very little red eye yet.
Light, small, fast - very good cam for point n shoot !!!
Software bundle is shit (sorry) but i could use my Canons softwarepackage completely for the sony
Very good autofocus - never had unsharp shot yet.
(Canon G6 = 10 out of 20 shots in low light is unsharp)
Gave my G6 back and wait for DSC V3 now.
The reviews have all been glowing for this camera. DPReview noted how surprised they were that Sony managed to increase the level of detail without really increasing the noise. Impressive given the small 1/1.8 CCD.
