everyone who said the x100 obviously didnt bother to read.

Not really... The OP said what he wanted... Then he asked what we wanted....

Leica M9 (or its successor, ideally). I point, twiddle, then shoot. That's point and shoot, right?

I'm looking for a good, no GREAT, P&S camera. I'd like something with high optical zoom if possible. I prefer Canon, of course, but am open to other brands. If you couldn't have a DSLR, what would be the BEST P&S camera you could choose?

I'd go with either the Canon G12 or the Fuji X100.

I have both (Thanks to Santa for the latter) but i find Im using the G12 less and less because of the x100.

X100, but its kind of cheating, it cost more than entry level SLRs!

I'm surprised there aren't more m43 users or advocates here.

For about the size of a G series camera, one can get an interchangeable lens camera with sensors that are 5 times larger than a p&S and 2/3 the size of an APS-C sensor found on the 60D and 7D. All things being equal, a larger sensor will always out-perform a smaller one.

IMAGE: http://upload.wikimedia.org/wikipedia/commons/thumb/f/f0/Sensor_sizes_overlaid_inside.svg/300px-Sensor_sizes_overlaid_inside.svg.png

After many years of using the G7 followed by the G10 and S90, I finally purchased the Olympus E-P3 in September, and there is no comparison in shooting speed (virtually no AF or shutter lag and much faster processing) or image quality.

I have the 12mm f/2 (24mm FF equivalent), 20mm f/1.7 (40mm), and 45mm f/1.8 (90mm) lenses, and used wide open, I can achieve nice background blur, which is another major plus for the m43 format.

The format still lacks fast pro zooms, but they already have native zoom lenses to cover the entire range now: 14-28 (FF equivalent), 24-100, 90-300, 200-600, etc. Because of the sensor size and mirrorless design, all of these lenses are lighter, and generally much smaller, than FF lenses, and even the APS-C sensor mirrorless cameras.

If you haven't tried an m43 system, you really owe it to yourself (and your back) to give it a try. It's highly addictive.

Look for camera with raw support and larger sensor
