I was going thru similar angst, only P7100 or Fuji X10. I had pretty much made up my mind to buy the Fuji, and then this morning I saw the P7700 announcement. If it had a viewfinder, it would be pretty much a slam dunk for me. The lens blows away everyone else's offering. And it has an articulating screen, which is nice, but not a major factor to me. It looks like it has very SLR like controls, too. So, I think I'm going to just wait them out. I'll take my LX3 to Europe next month with my D700 and just live within its limitations. It still takes great pictures in the right conditions. I hate being whipsawed by dueling technological improvements!
