My venerable A610 has served me many years of use (abuse) and has delivered more than 25,000 snapshots since it came home from target in 2005. However, I fear it's showing it's age these days. I'm starting to get a ever increasing number of OOF shots indoors. I Suspect that the focus motor or gears are starting to gum up from the lubricant hardening over time, or just plain old wear and tear. It's lived a good life, but I can no longer ignore the fact that it may be time to move on.
I have played with a few P&S's but haven't really come across any that have wowed me like the 610 did when I first picked it up. Just wondering what opinions are as to an IQ comparable replacement these days.
for me IQ is top priority. There was no IS, no 800 ISO so I've learned to work within the cam's limitations over the years lots of rocks, posts, walls and duct tape have been used to great effect. so I'm willing to take those compromises into account.
I'd welcome some suggestions.
