RogerCooke: All well and good, but I miss the LX7. I am a very satisfied user, and its cratering price should have earned it a spot in the line-up

the most interesting thing about this thread is the insistence by some that their favorite be on someone else's list. it's just a list, not the word from on high. a lot of cameras make no one's top 5 list and are wonderful for the user. enjoy, enjoy!

i don't find this list strange. the fact is that whilst looking for a smallish camera with a zoom lens i looked at three of these - the fz200, the xz-2 and the rx100. all three have something to offer given my basic criteria of smaller and lighter than my k5, generally more convenient for grab and go than my m9 and better in low light than my dlux4. i opted for the rx100, but if it doesn't work out, the xz-2 (which is just a tad bigger than the dlux) could be the one. i must be one of the few who is not enamored of canon colors, so the canon would not make my list at this time. this is a good starting point list if you recognize that it's for those who want a camera with a zoom lens that is not a dslr. after that, caveat emptor!
