Well my Canon G10 is not shooting so well these days and thus my picture taking has dropped off quite a bit. I may try to send it in to Canon and have the lens mechanism replaced, but I think it will cost more than it is worth. It has taken a lot of abuse over the years. So...that leaves me in research mode for a new camera. Needs are: good pictures decent video rugged small fast 5x+ zoom lens Anyone have any recommendations? The G10 certainly was not small, but it took good pictures that gave me lots of cropping options. Thanks.
