Confused! Needing a compact companion to my Panasonic FZ20
I keep relatively upto date with new camera news and but particularly on new Panasonic models.
What I am in the market for is a compact companion to my existing FZ20. Something preferably pocket size, but i dont mind if it requires a big pocket Don't mind which brand, as long as it's good.
I've seen alot of the different new models from Pana and other companies, and Fuji/Olympus/etc all seem to offer potentially attractive models, but always find things fall down in certain areas to cover my needs.
Ideally i'd like a compact which offers:
Leica lens (or something just as good!)
F2.8->F11 (or higher)
ISO 80/100->800 (or higher)... And it would be nice if ISO >400 was actually usable and not just noisy watercolours
Preferably wide-angle (ie 28mm+)
Don't mind if optical zoom is only 3x
And preferably 6mp+
Don't mind spending a fair bit on it, but the requirement is that it is compact, as i need something more discreet for travelling/backpacking and something i can quickly take out/put away.
Thanks for any advice!
