We shelved the discussion for a couple of years while atara was in school, but now that we are starting to claw our way back into the black, we've renewed the discussion, and it sounds like we might actually buy one in the next couple of weeks.
I started doing some on-line shopping, and even though we're not looking for something to replace the big ones, I was immediately drawn to models like the ZS7, HX5V, TX7, SX210... I haven't done any serious shopping since I bought the Nikon almost four years ago, so I'm a bit out of the loop, and I have never shopped for a subcompact. What kind of things should I be shopping for?
Do any of you out there have some wisdom or experience that you can share with me? I'd be happy to hear any anecdotal evidence. Have you had good or bad experiences with a particular make or model? Are there any cameras that you've heard especially good things about? Are there any that I should be actively avoiding? Is the Leica M8 really worth $8,999.99?
Anyway, I welcome any suggestions you might have.
