Default Lx3 wx5 p7000

This thread is DEAD. Please go to the new thead on Panasonic vs. Panasonic

I'm considering my next camera in between huge stage of interchangeable lenses, and entry-level compact cameras: which is, high-end.

well, WX5 can not be considered as the high-end. but still, it features many innovative features from sony. and i would love to have HDR inside. (does P7000 feature that?)

I'll carry camera sometimes in pocket so portability can be a issue
but my previous camera was having poor grip so i may want to have decent grip.

Excited to take pictures with unknown camera.
Best regards.

if you want small and high end, the new panasonic lx5 fits that better then the p7000. But I think the the wx5 is the only one with inbody hdr.

I too agree with Shoturtle.Both r highend, prosumer level cameras but Nikon P7000 is a bit bulkier. Why nt consider the Canon S95? Xcellent pocketable camera. Prob the best in it's class.

Default About IQ.

I'm pretty sure about P7000 and LX3 about IQ,
But for WX5, I'm not that feeling good about it.

Is there are any professional resource info about WX5's IQ?

@shoturtle I found out that in here(Korea, not north!) the price diff. between LX3 and LX5 is almost $100.
and that is a huge gap for me because I'm still student.

What abt Nikon S8100? Do check it out. Though I haven't used it but I have a feeling it's a good P&S camera from Nikon atlast alongwith the P7000.

well the lx3/5 has a f2 lens, so it does perform a bit better then the p7000 with the f2.8. So it had a slight iq edge in low light.
