Sony H50 or H20?

Hi I am buying new camera next week, and I don't know what to choose from these cameras.
For me, the most important is image quality. I don't care about the size of the camera, and filming for me is just additional option. What camera you think is better?

I am a happy owner of a H50, but I think that, if I were to buy a camera now, I would go for the H20.

The H50 gives you a better zoom, NightShot, and a remote control.
The H20 has better video and is cheaper and easier to carry around.

However, the main point for me is the fact that the H20 can be adapted to use 58mm filters. The H50 uses 74mm filters. 74 is an unconventional size and the options are very limited. You could also use 72mm and 77mm filters in the H50, but still, 58mm filters are much cheaper than 72, 74, or 77mm filters.

One more thing: a number of stores don't even sell the H50 anymore.

Anyway, both cameras are great, so you really can't go wrong with any of them.
