For the last few months I have been drooling over each review I saw
about the LX3. I am also in the market for a light pocketable high
quality point & shoot. I search long and wide. At the end only the
Panasonic LX3 and the Canon Powershot G10 came up as the best
contestants. The Pentax point & shoot cameras did not even got to
the semi-finals. This is too bad. Finally the LX3 won my hearth.

She also came at the conclusion the LX3 is the one. But she is not

I went to see my favorite salesman in my best brick and mortar store
and talk about my condition. The salesman who is probably the more

greedy hands on a LX3 or maybe a hypothetically LX4…???? This is

frame and all sorts of goodies that will put Canon and Nikon in shame.

If this little beauty is about to emerge...
