"F2 compact at 24mm equivalent-someone was thinking"5.0 starson by clanceylufkin
courageous design-quality over pixel count
Cons: no significant telephoto but with reasons
Summary: The most commendable thing about this camera is that while pretty much every other company was reaching for higher and higher pixel count Panasonic broke the mold with the LX-3 and choose to actually concern itself with picture quality as the most important aspect of their camera.
While the camera isn't perfect I'm giving it 5 stars because I'm marking on the curve and even a year after its introduction there is still nothing better in its class.
