I like taking pictures and am in the market for a new camera. I
owned a Pentax Spomatic for many years and recently a Nikon Coolpix
880. Don't want to carry a 35mm anymore and enjoyed the size of the
Coolpix 880. So my requirements include:
1. Wide angle lens
2. Hot shoe
3. Able to fit into my pocket.
4. Not sure about the limited zoom in the Leica/Panasonic but like
the brighter lens. I could use another camera for the zoomed in
shots.
None of these cameras are available to check out locally and I'd like
to have opinions on which camera would be most usefull and durable.

I'm having similar thoughts at the moment.

Make sure you are checking both cameras in a local store before buying, and find out if you feel like carrying them around. I found out that my Canon G5 is to bulky for me to carry it around every day.

If the G10 is similar to it's predecessors, it should be very durable. I also like the software available for the canon line-up (have a DSLR too). Can't comment on the Panasonic.

I understand that you would like to make a decision now, but I would definitely wait until you have a chance to check them out in person.

You are mentioning the hot shoe. Do you already have a flash you would like to reuse? I have a Canon flash, which make the G10 a bit more interesting. If you don't have one you are reusing, Metz makes excellent generic stuff...
Would be interesting for me, to hear your final thoughts/decision here.
Cheers,
Alexander
