    I'm thinking about getting the Sony Cyber-shot DSC-T7 sometime soon. I have read some mixed reviews, but mostly very good ones. I love how it is like half an inch thick and has a large 2.5" LCD. Anyone have any opinions about it? So far I have had great luck with Sony products. And how is the Carl Ziess lens?? Thanks.

    I really liked it when I've played with it, but I actually just bought the DSC-T33. It is virtually identical, except it is a tad thicker (as I was told at BestBuy and also thru research). It is also ~$125 cheaper. I picked it up on Saturday and love it. The size is excellent and the pictures are great. I haven't taken anything in low light yet (the one supposed downfall), but otherwise it has been great. The battery seems to be great. The only bad part is that the memory is very pricey (as compared to SD cards). Just my $.02

    Thanks for the reply. I'm glad to know I'm not the only Sony-lover around here. :) I think the DSC-T33 is nice too, but I like the T7 better. I also notice you live near me (I believe). I love A2!!!

    Yeah A2 is not bad. I graduated from UM in '02. I just was back about a month ago and was amazed at how much has changed.

    I have a DSC-T1 which is essentially the same guts but in a different case.. i do love the photos that ive taken with it, but because of the small lense size i tend to notice that its not the greatest in low light conditions. I get some lense flare using flash indoors (it might also be reflections from dust particles), but overall its been a great camera.

    I own this camera and love it. I had a V1 (which is also good). Battery life is not that great. Indoor pics could be better but in good light the pictures are really amazing. You won't think they came out of a camera that small. The thing I like most is it is really pocketable - I carry it when I would never have carried any other camera. Can't really take pics w/o a camera.....

    Thanks guys. I have decided on the DSC-T1, because like Ed H said, it's the same guts in a different case, but only slightly thicker. I think it might feel more comfortable in my hand, but I'm not sure. However, the main reason I chose it is because it is at a much more reasonable price (the list price is $550 and I will be buying it for $285 ($295 including tax) from Digital Foto) and I find that as a very good deal. I will also be buying a 256MB card, and probably the $15 Sony case. I will be ordering it tomorrow (well, I guess that would be today now...), so I can take it with me on my trip to NYC in a couple weeks. Thanks again.
