Hello... please help me choose between dimage x21 and dimage x20.

Dimage x20 came out last year (i think). It won a DIMA 2004 digital
camera shootout award. It's only 2mp but that's really enough for my
use. I've seen images taken with it and i'm satisfied enough.

DiMAGE X21 is a model that just came out. It looks more aesthetically
appealing to me as i've never liked the looks of the x20 much. There
are perhaps a couple more features added, mostly a couple of effects
(i don't care much about these, i prefer to do them in photoshop), and
a couple of shaved off features.

The main differences i can see are Autofocus and sensitivity (ISO)...

- The dimage 20 has wide area focus (5 Point AF) whereas the dimage 21
has Center Focus Area

- The dimage 20 has Auto(ISO50-160), ISO 50,100,200,400 whereas the
dimage 21 has Auto (ISO50-200)

here is a comparison chart with links to detailed specification of

they are the same price, which one do you think i should take? i'm not
sure if the new model is an improvement over the older one or if it's
just made more profitable for the company. I do feel though i ought to
get the new one 'cos the old one would probably start depreciating
now. what do you guys think?
