LOVE the HX-100 - but gotta return it

I got the HX-100 specifically for its (well stabilized) long-zoom for a 10-day cruise to Alaska.

LOVED IT ... and had little problem learning it. Got about 1000 great photos.

It is a great camera for what it is, and used the 800mm many times.

BUT ... I simply must have wider wide-angle ... and RAW.

My normal day-to-day photos are 90% at the wide angle, 14mm (equivalent) was my favorite lens back in film days. I realize no P&S is going to give 14mm equivalent but there are some with 23mm etc.

What I would love to see on a P&S, (and we seem to be getting close) is a 20mm equivalent. And a 40x zoom would give 20 to 800.
