Thanks for the excellent info on the new Panasonic LF1 digital camera. I am using a Sony RX100 which is another great small compact digital camera. I just received my Panasonic LF1 yesterday, charging the battery and will be taking it to a music concert this evening. I just brought the Canon EOS M digital camera with a large sensor and the 18-55mm IS lens for only $349 from my favorite buying place, Amazon. I also have the Panasonic GX1 including 6 Panasonic lenses to use with the camera. I like the LF1 as it is not only small but also slim. The RX100 is thicker than the LF1. I just brought a Cute leather case that is made for the LF1. Hope that it will arrive soon.
