Hello from Washington State - the dry side

Hello all! I've been posting around SC, thought it was time to introduce my self. I've been playing around with compacts since, well, a long time. I took my first pics with my Mom's Kodak Duaflex IV, and my favorite 35mm's were my Exa and my Exacta. Then I went Olympus SLR. I've been through many digital P&S and just two DSLR (both Canon). Now the only compact 35mm left in the house is our T3. Husband shoots a V-Lux 20.

My favorite P&S (compact) to date (ever) was my G10 (purchased used). It recently died and I've tried a few other P&S in the $300+/- range, none I liked as well. The replacement budget is <$600.
ETA: My new to me D-Lux 4 arrives 9.2.11 just in time for a weekend in Seattle with the pup.
