Are you gonna buy the HD1a?

Hey,

I was wondering if you are gonna buy the new HD1a now that it's available. Made a small poll too.

The HD1a does not look like it has any real improvement over the HD1 if anything the LCD screen that it comes with is not as good (less resolution and not as bright). More editing options but who cares about that? I do my editing on the lap top anyway (Final Cut HD).

I still have 7 months of warrantee remaining on my camera. I'll replace it when it's off warrantee, but by that time the HD1a will be old news.

The fact that the significant jaggies flaw hasn't been corrected makes me question the long term implications of buying Sanyo. The company has had since February (or before?) to correct this issue; instead we are told it will not be fixed. I don't plan to purchase another Sanyo product unless the jaggies bug is corrected. Even then, I'll be hesitant.
