the LX3 while not long on zoom range offers excellent low-light capabilities, (for a P&S of course). It offers really quite outstanding image quality and alot of serious features, (including a useable RAW mode) for a small camera.

i expect the Canon s90 will be a good competitor to the LX3, but so far this has not been substantiated as I don't believe it has shipped yet, or if it has, its too recently to get a good review.

Hi guys, i just ordered a camera, the Sony WX1, after reading about 1 million reviews and pictures I thought this would be the best (compact!) camera for my needs. I hope it will keep up to my expectations when I received it

Congratulations, Mll-

The search is finally over. Pay close attention to edge to edge sharpness in the images from the WX-1. I returned my WX-1 based on soft focus.

Thanks Sarah,

...I must admit, I didn't read the kinda negative feedback on the forum here regarding the WX1 (until today, hehe).

If I had though, I doubt if I would have bought it!
But I did, and so far I am happy with it I only had the opportunity to make low light photo's (it was a rainy dark day) and although there is some noise in the pictures, I think it is really not that bad at all.

I attached one example image, just used the automated defaults to shoot it.

Oh and you just gotta love the panoramic feature, I think its trully amazing, it worked great even indoors

Mll-

The important thing is that you are having fun with your new camera.

Have a great weekend.
