Well, let me share a little experience I just went through. I've been complaining that our professional cameras are too heavy & too big & wah wah wah....you get what i was saying....so Steve & I decided we'd try out a point & shoot camera, a 10MP Lumix with a nice Leica Lens....we took it on our family reunion, but I totally didn't like the lag it had---it seemed sooo slow, that I often caught the 2 second "later" reaction shot that I was looking for---it was SO frustrating, so limiting. Never-mind the color was awful & the convenience wasn't as awesome as I thought!!! I was soooo dissapointed when I got home! So, instead, Steve bought me a Pancake Lens for our one camera aka Olympus Zuiko 25 mm f2.8 Pancake Lens...it's so cute! It makes my camera just as compact as the point & shoot crap I bought!! The color is amazing, very sharp details & beautiful skin tones!!! I'm in love, there's no going back now, I just had to get it out of my system that a compact camera is what I thought I wanted!!! Hindsight you say??? Sometimes we just gotta learn the hard way, good thing there's great return policy's out there!!!
