Default Returning the Panasonic FZ100, back to the drawing board

Need your help again everyone...

Recap... I had a Canon SX10 that was stolen, (I was pretty happy with my SX10, probably less pixels and larger sensor, not sure though) replaced it with a Panasonic FZ100.

After struggling with noise issues, it was determined that I had a defective FZ100. They replaced it and the noise is not as bad, but to me still not acceptable for this kind of price. I took it in yesterday and they have agreed to take it back and replace it with something else.

In the beginning I was wanting a super zoom, with fast frames per second, that's why I decided on the FZ100. I have now determined that my wants and needs differ a bit.

I now have thought to give up the super zoom part of my needs/wants. I'd like to get something that has good image quality, performs well in low light, has manual controls and has a quick frames per second as possible. I'm wanting something that is a overall good performer with good quality results.

I'm leaning towards a Canon again, just cause I was fairly satisfied with the results for the most part. Is there a Canon that shoots well (for a point and shoot) in low light, decent fps and has good image quality?

Any suggestions?

The Panasonic LX5 (3-5 fps burst) and Canon G12 (4 fps) are worth looking at. The LX5 will be the better low light performer of the 2 - very slightly bigger sensor and f2.0 vs f2.8 lens. The Canon S95 is 1.9 fps I think.

Hi as you were a canon user and happy I would think the G12 would be the answer. Go back to the shop and see if you can get some hands on with them. They both use SD cards so take one with you and see what the quality is.

Thanks all for your advice.

I made the plunge and purchased a Canon DSLR.
