OPINIONS needed on Canon SX130is

I am considering getting this camera to carry in my purse since selling the G12 because it was to heavy. I read several reviews on Amazon that stated:
1. Horrible battery life.
2. Moisture and dust getting into the lens.
3. Low shutter speed.

My most important question is: How visible is the LCD in bright sun? I've had several cameras where the screen was solid black, nothing visible and since most compacts lack viewfinders, this has been a problem for me. (I live in the deep south).

Please feel free to offer opinions and/or recommendations. I'm on a strict budget.
I appreciate any help.
