Just like many other Sony digital cameras, the Cybershot DSC-H2 comes with the Carl Zeiss lens that so many people adore. I am currently the owner of the H1 and I am very impressed with the specs on it. The H2 is very similar to the H1 with the 12x zoom and the light-weight/compact design. However, they have increased the image quality to 6.0 megapixels which bumps it up to the ‘standard’ for digital cameras right now. The H2 also has a higher sensitivity to details which comes in handy for low-light situations.
Of course, to get the newest camera you will have to fork out $385 while you can get the similar H1 for $120 less! Overall, the upgrades don’t seem to be worth it for current H1 owners but they do say that if you own an H1 then you will love the H2 just as much (probably because they didn’t really change anything :) ). I think the release of this camera was to help Sony keep competitive with the current megazoom cameras on the market.
