I'm thinking of buying my wife a new P&S and do you have any thought about the new Pentax X-5 vs the upcoming Nikon P7700?
(Am also considering the Nikon D5100 for her)
She tried the Nikon J1, but did not like it. She has also tried my D800 and she likes this, but too big. She will not be switching lenses if she get the D5100, that's why I'm considering P7700 or the X-5.
(and I have the Panasonic LUMIX DMC-FZ200 as an outsider)
What's wrong with the P7100? At least is has an OVF and the video is more than adequate.
You may also want to consider getting her the P510 or the Panasonic FZ150 if you don't mind the smaller sensor.. but the IQ is still quite good.
As for the Pentax...personally..if I wasn't happy with the AF / Autoexposure performance of a K-5.... I highly doubt the X-5 would be an improvement.
