Wallcraft, thank you for this very helpful post.
The reason I have a bad impression of the Sony505 is that the photos I have seen show fairly gross, badly defined characters while the photos of the Hanlins seem very crisp and defined. This may partly due to the native fonts but, not being well informed I was not sure. I am aware that this impression may well be wrong which is why I posted my question.
May I ask you for your impressions of the differences between the 5" Hanlin and the 6" which you apparently prefer. The price difference would make me prefer the 5" version but I suspect the pages are too small, resulting in constant page changing. I would appreciate your thoughts on this. Thank you once again for taking the time to reply. Rojofo.
