It would seem almost odd that I would get excited about a point and shoot camera like the Panasonic Lumix DMC LX-3 but here is why I cannot wait to start shooting with it. When you carry your SLR camera and several of lenses around with you almost daily at times you can get fed up with the weight and the scene it can create. Quite often I just want to travel light and yet I really do not like it when I miss out on a good photo opportunity. After reading several reviews and and after I've played around with the LX-3 for a bit in the store I bit the bullet and ordered one today.
One of the strong points of the LX-3 is the wide 24mm equivalent f/2.o lens. It is a Leica lens and test pictures that I have seen look very promising. I will follow up in the near future with an update.
