I'm in the market for a compact/pocket camera around approx. $500. I have a Canon DSLR and this one will be used also by my wife, but I also want good flexibility and control. Can anyone recommend a few good ones for me to look at? I did find the Panasonix LX5 which I thought was great, but it has a lens cap instead of the standard sliding cover, which will be annoying for the type of use it will get by the range of users. I'm hoping someone can help???
