I have decided to purchase the Panasonic Lumix DMC-LX3. But it won't be for another few days (payday in other words) - so naturally, and as I always do, I'm still digging around the net for little snippets of info on the camera.
I found a blog which included some rather nice photo's taken by the LX3 and also the Leica version. Even better at the bottom of the page is a rather nifty solution to the lens cap problem.
