A700 user needs P&S...need opinions of other Alpha owners
Sep 4, 2009

I haven't touched a P&S camera for awhile since I've been using KM 7D, A100, and now A700 for the last several years. However, I'll be going to the desert for several months courtesy of the military, and I am NOT taking my A700 nor any of my precious lenses.

Does anyone who is a regular Alpha user have any suggestions on a P&S that won't annoy me with shutter lag, slow focusing, etc? Ideally, I want to keep costs down because I am unlikely to use the camera when I return (I'll probably give it to my wife). I'd rather have the opinions of people in this forum because I want to know what DSLR owners can put up with in a camera.

Size is an issue, but it doesn't have to be ultracompact (ie., I'd love an R1, but that's probably not practical). Thanks in advance.
