Re: recommendations for a p&s Lumix up to $300

Given your overall preferences, the LF1 is the best match.  Lots of control and good IQ, not as good as the LX7 (which I have).  I returned the LF1 as I found it too small to handle, control ring is very thin and no flrxibility in function, and I much prefer 24mm to 28mm. The EVF is perfectly usable when LCD can't be used. The obvious choice is the TZ60/ZS40 but being new it is above your price range and may never get down to sub $300 but then I thought that about the LX7

The LVF2 to go with the LX7 is expensive and the LX7 only goes to 90mm but the iZoom takes it further with good results.

Handling wise, the TZ60/ZS40 is the best of the trio IMO.

TZ30/ZS20 is an inexpensive and good camera.
