    oly c5050 rocks! ... But, I wonder whether the fuji f10/f11 high iso can make up for the missing large aperture??

    I suppose if u want f1.4 for the speed, F10/F11's high ISO SHOULD compensate ba... Sounds logical to me...

    does the old Canon 7s RF film camera qualify as a point and shoot?
    F1.8 ? that's for sissies.... Canon 7s has a F0.95 lens.
    old Yahsica Lynx RF has a F1.4 lens.

    Hehehe.

    Canonet QL17 definitely not new, not current either, but they don't make cameras like they do in the 60s and 70s anymore!

    To appropriately answer your question: the oly 5050Z.

    I'm using 300d with an 35/f2

    but I miss my c4040 (size and bright lens)!

    I posted this thread as I never keep up on the point and shoot market as it changes too fast.

    Hope to see new cameras with f1.8/f2 with usuable iso800. (fuji f11 is the closest now...)

    Fuji F11 at ISO 800 or 1600, f/2.8 has decent results similar to ISO 400 at f/1.8.

    The canon G3 is a good cam with a 1.8 lens, 4megapix and its still the best G series cam i think...the noise levels were good for a camera during its time...

    I have a canon G6 and though it has an f/2 lens, it is unuseable at ISO 400. The noise is horrible. ISO 100 is great and 50 is excellent. 200 will work at a pinch, with proper NR it is pretty decent.

    so f/2 at iso200 is still not as good as f2.8 at iso400 of fujifilm f11?
