    marko - i really really enjoyed my sony h5 - and i know they have more, new & improved versions, (i think h7 then h9, then i lost track of how outdated mine was quickly becoming) but i love love love it, and still do. i use it for quick shots & always like to have it handy for the video clip ability. you may want to take a peek at its bigger & better versions... just to compare. happy shopping! (you probably will be pleasantly pleased with the receipt total, since youve never bought p&s before - much different from dslrs!)

    My mistake has been seeking new landscapes. I should have been seeking new light.

    Get a G9. I had a Lumix on a road trip with a friend that had a G9 and his images were a lot cleaner in comparison. We had taken shots of the same things and my Lumix just wasn't up to par with the G9.

    I swear when I look at the load out for pros... they always have a G9 in there for their point and shoots... or that is what they carry all the time when they don't have the heavier SLR/DSLR.

    I am looking into a G9 after I get an a900. So that is going to be between Feb to April, if I get it. I keep shoving money into that envelope.

    I don't have my Lumix... It got dropped about 40 feet off a mostly vertical rock face by a friend of mine. Needless to say, I don't think any camera would have survived the several rocks that obliterated the camera.

    So, my non-DSLR camera is a Kodak easyshare CX7430, and I say that with embarrassment. Well.. as far as digital goes... I have several vintage and old SLR cameras.

    You know... You might want to look at the Canon s5 IS Powershot. It is a lot lighter than a dslr... has 12x optical zoom... the best movie mode I have seen in a digital camera (at its cost). The downside is probably the fact that it is not small... my kodak easyshare fits in a pocket with my cellphone. It is only 4mp but then again,.... if I lose it, oh well.. I can get another pretty easily.

    I did a lot of research though and the G9 and the newest Lumix are probably the best bets... I think the Lumix is a better bargain as far as the price goes though.

    Here is a great link:

    oh.. btw... the G9 has a flash shoe.

    If I had the money right now, after doing plenty of research on this topic, I would get the G9.
