Hi all,

I was going to get the FX9 but I think I like the specs on the LX1 better.

LX1 advantages over FX9:
Wide angle: 28mm
native 16:9 ratio CCD
AP/SP/Manual exposure modes
16:9 movies
Looks more sturdy

FX9 advantages over LX1
(Looks like LX1 lens barrel sticks out. Not good for in-pocket mode.)
Costs US$200 less

BTW, shipping date at least Sept. 25.

I have two months to change my mind. Plus like I did when buying the FZ20, I ended up getting it though a month earlier and $15 cheaper thus cancelling my Amazon order.

Enjoy life!

I am looking at this camera too, (along with the soon-to-be-released Fuji E900 and the Canon SD500). If Canon would only release an upgraded version of the S70 wide angle, I'd love to get a look at that one. When you receive your LX1, please let us know what you think, especially about image quality and battery life. Thanks and congrats.

I am hoping the LX1 goes on sell at Circuit City this week or the next. I will most likely order the LX1 as early as possible from anohter source and cancel my Amazon order.

Oh, I will definately post pics and give a first impressions review. I hope to get it a test drive on my vacation to the NE US in a couple of months.

Enjoy life!
