Default Back in the Panny fold again

After selling my ZS7 and going to a compact mirrorless camera, I wanted a compact backup that had raw capabilities. I decided on a LX3 since I wanted it mainly for landscape and architectural photography. Finding a good deal for a lx-3 on that internet auction site, I got a slightly used LX-3. Doing some test shots I was not happy with the WB, but after upgrading the firmware to the latest firmware, I was supremely happy with the changes and took it out for a first time shoot. Deciding to push it to the limit, I decided to try some twilight and night shots. I learned that as long as I keep the ISO under 800, I am very happy with the IQ. I'm still not used to the flexibility of aspect ratio that I can achieve. All shots were handheld. I used a RAW workflow using UFRaw and Noiseware Community Edition, but the JPEGs OOC were only slightly worse. I can't wait to try out some more shots with my new old camera.
