Sony is out for blood with their HX9V, a relatively expensive, high performance travel zoom that aims to be nothing less than the best camera in the category.
Optical zoom has been upgraded to 16x, and it's likely Sony stuck with the same 16 megapixel sensor that powers their excellent HX100V. Admirably, the HX9V does not go to war armed with a smokescreen of bells and whistles, but rather with the assurance of fine images.
