I'd like to try a Lumix especially for the 1 inch sensor. I am always reluctant to spend much on the p&s because I just don't seem to be able to hold onto them. Literally. I have been through a half dozen or so because I drop them so much. Ha, that would be great. Too bad Mrs. Trip can't be trained like that. Yes, that was interesting and unfortunate. When I googled it, I read of their financial woes, and they were working on a last minute buy-out by a Chinese travel company. I guess that fell through. An interesting note: The number of stranded travelers made it the biggest repatriation effort for England since Dunkirk!
