Thanks Rontth and Sarah

I couldn't resist a side-by-side shot of the LX3 and the FZ50 with oly Wcon07 screwed on.

The Wcon07 is an effordable wide-converter which gives you almost the same wideangle as the LX3 does; only zero zooming flexibility, and a lot of bulk around your neck. The Raynox DCR-FE180pro fullframe fish-eye lens gives you flexibility, but even more bulk and weight. -and costs 3/4 of an LX3:!: And you still don't have the gizmo's and quality that hte LX3 offers

But it can't be perfect. It's freezing over here, and there's no controlling the lx3 with handgloves. Dealing with the tiny controls with frozen fingers isn't much either. But it's a small matter. What I mis most is a flipable display. Wideangle is inviting for shooting from low positions, which is guessing with the LX3

More new pictures to come tomorrow
