Possible replacements to Canon A520

I just dropped my [rfdlink=38]Canon[/rfdlink] A520 from my hand yesterday and now I have the dread E18 error, the lens won't retract. The camera is out of warranty and I am not sure if opening up would help.

I am looking for a replacement camera that uses AA batteries and SD cards. I just went to Staples and Future Shop today and saw:

[rfdlink=38]Canon[/rfdlink] A590IS - $170
[rfdlink=38]Canon[/rfdlink] A720IS - $220
[rfdlink=38]Canon[/rfdlink] SX100 - $276
Panasonic LZ10 Bundle w/ charger and case - $250

Does anyone have any opinions about these cameras and suggestions? Is the panasonic likely to suffer from the same problem?

Black's has A570IS for $129.99, video mode 640x480 30 fps is better than A590IS 640x480 20 fps.
