HX5V: I found out HX5V has been rated 'bad' in terms of IQ, and I really don't need that much of the zoom. I need more f/numbers than mm.

TL500: I really liked ergonomics, and f/1.8-2.4 lens. But no HD Video. <DEAD>

WB650: Overall nice, But f/3.2.

FH100: I really liked Casio-like fast reaction, HS Video, Nice design. I'll consider this!

Price: WX5 < LX3 < P7000
Size: WX5 < LX3 < P7000
Grip: WX5 < LX3 < P7000
IQ: WX5 < P7000 < LX3
fps: WX5 < LX3 < P7000

Sony DSC-WX5
Pros: - The only camera having back-illuminated sensor. +1 for [email protected]
- Covering wide range of 24-120mm eqv. having 5x Optical Zoom.
- Auto HDR/3D Panorama+Tilt/Handheld Twilight/Defocus (all seems amazing)
- 10fps. much better than others. (almost 5 times)
- 1080i video, best of 3. (but still 720p feels very big to me.)
- and having the most compact-est form.

Cons: - No PASM. (NOOO!)
- Not any kind of 'High Performer' in terms of IQ.
- Too much compact having eventually 'no grip'.
- Very small sensor. Half the size than others.

Panasonic DMC-LX3
Pros: - Incredible IQ.
- Very fast f/2-2.8 Leica glass.
- Very handy and compact compared to P7000
- Nice, Decent grip considering that this is very compact body.
- Panasonic-tradition Fast AF

Cons: - Little bit too big for jean pockets.
- Slow fps rate. (2.5fps+Limit)
- Short Zoom Range (24-60mm eqv. anyway doesn't matters to me)

Nikon Coolpix P7000
Pros: - Quite decent IQ
-Nice Nikkor glass covering huge range of Wide to Tele.
- Amazing Grip. Best of 3.
- 720p Video + Continuous AF and Optical Zoom. In video, Best of 3.
- Optical Viewfinder. Not unusable. But Unusable. Useful on daylight shooting.
- The most well-equipped controls making quick adjustment on manual mode.

Cons: - Slow operation. (especially on RAW)
- HUGE than others. Definitely un-pocket-able.
- Slow fps rate. 2fps @ Limited.

Edited with more infos and 'Pros' and 'Cons'.

I want to get one from here. Not another unknown model.
What camera should I buy?

Did U check out the Canon's I mentioned earlier? and do check up on Panasonic TZ10/ZS7,b4 U make a decision.It's almost up there with the S95 in overall performance. I don't know how I missed it out earlier.

SD4500 IS: More slow lens than ZS7, and not cover more wide-angle than ZS7.

SX210 IS: Don't like it's design. I like it's controls, but hate the design.

SX130 IS: I love this camera, love the grip, love that style, BUT! Battery life is terrifying.

ZS7: I heard this does not have 'Half-shutter' to activate AF. Except for that, this should be considerable!

FX700: i SWEAR i will not enjoy shooting with touchy screen. Not efficient.

In good lighting the ZS7 IQ is indeed very good. In low light, the S95 will trounce it of course. I have both and like both for different reasons.

Incorrect. It functions the same as most other cams - focus on half-shutter press.

Finally! I decided to slap P7000 off. It's too big and slow.

LX3 vs. ZS7!
