After serving me reliably for many years, my Lumix is comatose after falling from about 300 ft as I was making my way up the West Face of Tahquitz. The camera's body came out surprisingly well for such a fall on hard granite, but can no longer zoom or get a crisp image. Aside from the gashes on the front, only the door to the memory and battery blew out. The lens actually stayed intact.
I'm looking to get the latest version unless any poster has suggestions for another "tough" camera that has performed exceptionally well. It has to be able to withstand water, snow, and repeated bangings while taking clear pictures. Features like GPS or wifi etc. are not required.
