Panasonic Lumix DMC-LX3. To paraphrase Britney, it's not a point and shoot, but not yet an SLR. But it gets results (check out this Flickr pool), is in my budget, has retro stylings to look like your Dad's camera from 1982 and gets great reviews. I'm really looking forward to trying it out!
Which camera are you using at the moment? Do you love it?
