Help upgrading my P&S.
Feb 25, 2013

I'm looking to upgrade my point & shoot to use as a back-up for my DSLR and for those times when the BIG gear is not appropriate.  I want something that will excel in taking outdoor scenic shots as well as indoor shots of things like grandkid's concerts, etc.  (Have an important scenic road trip planned in the next couple months.) So I'm looking for a decent zoom range.  My current SX230 has a 14X zoom, which has been a nice feature to have.  So definitely need longer than a mere 4X zoom.  Canon's G15 might be a consideration.  But afraid I may need to move to another brand to get the quality AND longer zoom reach. $400 would be a good max to spend, or trading some MFT gear for the P&S.

Any suggestions?  Thanks
