Friday 13th -- bad day for my EX1

Yesterday afternoon my EX1 was stolen and I'm sad. I had the camera for a year and a month. I really liked that camera. It was one of the best cameras I've ever owned.

It was my constant companion as I took it with me everywhere.

I can replace it and will do so shortly as I really like having a camera with me at all times.

And so the big questions: Do I just buy another EX1? Do I make myself wait for it's replacement? Do I buy a different camera? LX5?

My bottom line:

1. At least 74 degree angle of view on the wide end, not 75, 74. That's a 24mm equivalent in 35mm.
2. RAW files.
3. At least semi-auto control, preferably manual.
4. Fits in my pocket.

Meaningless to me:
1. All JPEG functions.
2. Video.
3. Flash.
4. Speed for action photos.

The LX5 is the only other camera I know that hits that checklist.

They're basically the same price.

The LX5 has a little more zoom reach and is a tad smaller and lighter.
The EX1 has that wonderful screen.

The LX5 is directly supported by my favorite RAW converter C1.
The EX1 requires that I do a DNG conversion first.

What to do, what to do.
