    hello, I am not familiar with Panasonic's line of P&S Lumix cameras. Is there a sub $200 model that has similar (or better) features and performance to the Canon HS100? The Canon HS100 is currently priced at around $170 on Amazon. I have had good experiences with Lumix (I have a G1 and GF1). I want to spend under $200 because this will be a casual, carry-everywhere pocket and purse camera for my wife and me to use when we don't feel like carrying our more "serious" gear. We don't need video or mega-zoom ranges. We just want something that takes decent pictures that is basic, compact and affordable. TIA, Warren.
