OK, let’s go out on a limb here – this is the best compact that we have tested. The Sony W series has always been good, but this one is amazing.
It offers a very pleasant, near pro-level, photographic experience at a reasonable cost and in a body that feels solid, well built and as if it was designed by someone who used one themselves.

Trusted Reviews has posted a review of the new Ricoh GX200.
The GX200 is a bit of a mixed bag when it comes to the images. At lower ISO settings in good light it can certainly produce the goods. Colour and tone are very pleasant and images have plenty of punch. Sharpness is good throughout the zoom range and there’s plenty of detail in the images.
Buy-n-Shoot.com has posted a review of the Olympus Mju 1020.
Overall, operating the Mju 1020 is delightfully straightforward (particularly if you have smaller hands) meaning that taking, reviewing, sorting, editing and deleting photos is a breeze, as too is selecting and using the various modes available.

Previously, we had heard that July 1 was the date, but it appears that Digital Depot has published something that they probably should not have if they really do have inside info.
