LX3 user comments

The noise control and detail retention look good enough for me. In fact, I'm impressed with the ISO800-3200 shots. My only concern is that some of the shots had blown highlights where I think my LX3 would have been able to handle them. Limited dynamic range is something that has bothered me about my P&S cameras (my last two being Canons). My LX3 has pretty decent range and often surprises me in that regard.

I like the 24/2 wide end on my LX3 but I'm willing to lose 4mm and 1 stop to get a flip/twist LCD and a longer telephoto.

One nice thing about Canon is that when the G11 hits the shelves, it'll be in good supply so I'll be able to wait for the detailed reviews before deciding whether to sell my LX3 and get a G11.

I guess the only thing that will really give me pause is if Panasonic releases an LX4.
