Did the UPS truck visit Casa Parker today? Lumix is a dandy. Fits the "best camera" idiom.
Ah, yes, the UPS man can drive to our house blindfolded now. All I need now is time to read the manual, an SD card (hasn't arrived yet, Sandisk Extreme III 8GB), and a camera bag. I'm seriously leaning toward a Crumpler 1 Million Dollar Home. This little wonder shall live on my body...My, Mr. Rabbit, you are a discerning and well-educated photographer. I'm tickled pink that somebody noticed!
Tom, we battle-scarred urban lagomorphs can spot a new camera from miles away, especially one that is lust-worthy. I can't decide whether to add a lens to my current stable or grab a Nikon P6000, Canon G10 or a Lumix for walkabouts.
Okay. Rabbit, here's the scoop: Rush out and buy an LX-3. Do not hesitate. it beats the pants off anything I've ever used or read about or lusted after (except, of course, my D700 and 2.8 lenses, all of them). After using it today (the 21st day of my project), all I can say is "Wow!" The sharpness, color saturation, contrast and exposure are phenomenal--and the 24 mm wide angle is awesome. And I can't get over how small it is! On your research for a walkabout, remember the LX-3's f2 lens--with f2.8 at the long end of the telephoto. None of the others can match that. None!
