Crowdsourcing a new camera

Panasonic Lumix TZ5 After a long and happy life, my digital camera (a Canon Ixus 500) seems to be dying, so it's time to crowdsource a new one. You did such a great job helping me crowdsource a new netbook recently that I'd like to give you another chance :-)

Features I need:
  • Compact
  • Good macro and low light performance
  • Cheap :-)
I'm thinking about a Panasonic Lumix, but I've heard bad things about the battery life - any experience? My alternative would be the Canon Ixus IXUS 120 - but I'd welcome other suggestions.
