For what I find myself doing I love the Ricoh GR1V, and the best part it's always with me when a photo needs to be taken. Sharp lens, great AE, manual features. Second place in the point and shoot realm easily goes to the olympus infinity stylus. I learned on the nikon FG and then found myself with a nikon N90s which I seldom find myself using though I should get into the habit of using it more.
