Hopefully other manufacturers other than Panasonic(LX3,LX5),Canon(G11,S90,S95),and now Nikon(P7000) might eventually realize that megapixel willy-waving in contradiction of basic laws of physics is a bad idea. When their new, "improved" models end up stalling on shelves due to abysmal drops in image quality (as seen in this case), maybe the whizkids in their marketing dept will get the message...

Then again, maybe not...

is IQ really that bad ? rating 6/10 ? I've tried to compare some crops with the relevant competition but it seemed to me being much better then samsung wb600/650 for instance when it comes to noise control ...

Bought the EX-H5 for my son, and just about dropped it on the floor when I realised that it had a battery charging device (perhaps its too long since I bought a camera, but would NOT have bought it if I had taken the time to investigate this basic point)...

Glass display open at the back. I am aware that many cameras now have the glass uncovered and will have to live with that. My 10 year-old Canon cover flipped round which protected the glass.

The covers for the lens are VERY exposed and liable to get snagged and twisted as there is no lens cover. Perhaps should be supplied with a case if nothing else.

End result is that I will HAVE to keep the camera myself (although I do not particularly want it) as not suitable for a blundering, ham-fisted 18 year old...

In the nicest possible way... what a strange comment. You seem to have taken the effort simply to point out that you didn't research your purchase and bought the wrong thing. No harm in that and indeed you're more than welcome to continue doing so. However, any underlying inference that this is somehow the fault of the camera is patently silly. It is entirely average for a modestly priced compact.

At any rate, it sounds like a cheap rugged compact is the best bet for your circumstances. One such as this: http://www.trustedreviews.com/Olympus-TG-310_Digital-Camera_review
