CAMERAS:Panasonic LX3 - (black)
I want to like this camera, but it desperately needs 24mm wide, the main reason I keep looking elsewhere. I am willing to give up the long end, but not willing to live without 24mm wide, oh well.
I guess I missed this announcement, but I really like the inclusion of the 24mm wide (16-50) and compact size. Only issue is the the price, comparing this system to a DSLR, I would expect $600-$700. Still a little overpriced for now.
LordGriNz: Almost perfect, but why not 24mm wide?!?!?!
The first thing I look for is 24mm wide, I won't live without it anymore, so if a camera lacks it.....then it goes on the pass list.
Digital Suicide: Not bad. Actually, quite good effort from SONY.Personally I would prefer less Mpixels and wider 24mm angle. And the design is not on the pretty side either. No grip at all.Hope Panasonic is on the way with LX5 replacement.
The LX5 has a more useful 24mm wide, and the ability to go 4:3 3:2 16:9 and 1:1 with the quick flick of a switch. Plus it has a nice grip on it, size isn't everything, I find the LX5 about as small as I wish to go.
