New Sony W300, W170, W150, W130, W120, W110 - that's all? We want more!

A five-pack six-pack of new W-series cameras verifies what we had empirically observed, the W-series is where Sony made a lot of noise in the digital camera market. As regular readers of our Charts feature recall, the Sony W55 had been quite popular, despite being available in multiple colors. So now Sony expands their popular line with more more more more and more! (Yes, a "more" for each new model!)
