I think that RAW is important (to edit in PS) to help remove noise from small sensor along with fringing etc. I have been using a Canon G9 and I have been happy with results but, a bit heavy.
1. Max 10 mp
2. Good size sensor say 2/3.
3. Min 28mm wide angle start.
4. Anti shake
5. RAW capability
6. Good build quality.

Just to let you know there is a way of getting RAW on some of the Canon 'A' series cameras as well as the G7.
Good Macro performance.
Light weight - though well built.
Good lens zoom range.
zero shutter lag ( stretching things I know)
After sales service.
I recently bought the Fuji S100fs and I'm very pleased with the results but I have to say the EVF is rubbish.
I've had a series of Fuji's and they've all delivered exactly the spec I want ( well except for the shutter lag)
- like an affordable M8!
If the G9 had a swivel screen I'd be very interested.
G9 is a bit bigger than I wanted, and as it didn't have that, and the optical VF is reputedly as bad as the earlier models, I dropped it off the list.
But if they had a swivel screen version I 'd look again.
Incidentally, if the evf on the GX100 had been as bad as the reviews said it was, I had considered getting an old Leica style plug on turret VF and adapting that, as he GX100 lens will step 24-28-35-50-72 equivalent.
As it is, I hardly ever use the optical VF on a G5, as the swivel LCD is so handy, but nearly always do use the EVF on the GX100, which does tilt.
SS wasn't top of my list, but would be a decision maker in a choice between two cameras. It was influential in Canon losing a sale and Ricoh gaining one.
Ability to shoot RAW
Funny, no-one has mentioned what can be the number 1 problem with compact cameras in street photo/low light circumstances:
The ability to quickly focus on a pre-determined object or at a fixed distance.
Everything else is gravy.
Oh yes, manual focus is quite important.
Quote: I dare anyone to name me an easier and more effective way of doing these kind of shots.
Koen I don`t think there are any current prosumers with swivel screens and like I said earlier there are now better ways of doing what you want.
The best use I`ve seen for a swivel screen just lately is for an assault rifles that shoots around corners
Better ways ? I saw the link - its a joke ?

Hardly, like I said there are all sorts out there now, some very similar to those used by combat pilots to show HUDS. Now dslr`s are starting to show with video capabilties they will become more popular.

What about the Panasonic FZ30/50 & the like?

One good turn deserves another, they say!

There both 2,3 years old.
Still only in kindergarten then (or playschool)!
