Thanks for all the info. I tested out some of the options.
Panasonic LX3/LX5 .. .I really liked how they looked ... unfortunately the lens is just a bit too big to carry with me in my pockets.
Samsung EX1 .. I really liked this one too, but same issue as the Panasonic LX3/LX5..
Think I'm gonna end up with either the Canon S90 or the Fuji F200EXR ... I can't seem to find a Fuji F70EXR at most retailers here.. everyone's switched over to F80EXR unfortunately.
I found a great deal on a 2nd hand S90 and new F200EXR .. and I can't seem myself justifying a paying a huge premium for the Canon S95.
Now its up to deciding approx $300 cdn for the S90 or the $270 cdn for the F200EXR ....
