I plumped for the "compact" Nykon, in the end.  I looked at the G12, the LX5 
(to replace my LX3) and the P7000.  I decided that I didn't want an articulated 
screen and that it was worth going for a camera that had the right shape (the 
P7000 is taller and shallower than the G12) and which had a good lens range 
combined with a decent zoom action.  I decided not to worry about the reported 
slowness of RAW save, since my LX3 is not much quicker and it doesn't bother me.

But it makes me a little sad that Olympus doesn't have a contender for the 
all-in-one serious camera.

A sample of my first day's shooting is at:
