Default DSLR to LX5

Recently sold my whole DSLR kit (was not getting the full use out of it anymore) and purchased an LX5. Very impressed with the camera but prefer the quality of shots from the RAW files compared to the in camera JPG files (even after playing with NR, sharpening settings etc.).
Looking at getting the FZ150 for when I need something with a longer lens.

Some sample shots from this fantastic compact camera.

Awww.. Tell me it's not so.

You're a very talented motor sports photographer, and I hate to think that you won't be sharing any more race photos with us, as your images are an inspiration to others looking to get good images at those types of events.

So, please tell us that you're just kidding us, or you have another kit you can use for those types of events.

It's true, sold my whole DSLR kit (see this post http://forums.steves-digicams.com/ca...last-shot.html). Was only getting out a few times a year (Young family, Wife working on weekends).
I will miss it but I think I will be back one day.
