Thanks for the tips! I am looking at the S100 and Im liking what I am seeing. The only thing is the pop up flash. Dont know how durable that would be. Also, looked at the Nikon 1 J1. Bit higher up in the price range, but looks like it may be a good one. I do like the chance to swap lenses, but again, its for her, not me. I dont think she would be running around changing lenses out. Probably end up losing it... Plus, she could have it in red. (last camera was a pos Nikon Coolpix s80. Lens broke after 1yr, pic qual was horrid, BUT, she loved the red body)
Another contender Panasonic Lumix DMC-LX5. Looks good. Good reviews.
And finally, the Olympus XZ-1.
All in all, the S100 seems to be the best bang for buck for a "Purse" camera, and I think Im heading that way. Maybe some thoughts on the others? I dont mean to bother, but I like to research a lot and ask people that are smart on things before I make an informed decision. Thanks for the help!!
