  1. Can you put on a lense or flash to this camera? Thinking of getting it but the zoom is not that much, but if you can get a zoom lense for it then I might consider…thanks!

  2. Just picked this up as well. Coming from an LX1, this camera improves immensely on an already awesome camera series. Gorgeous 24mm. Thank you Panny/Leica.

  3. the answers to your questions are yes you can add on a lens extender but you will lose 2 f-stops for the doubler and there is an optional flash and optical viewfinder. plus the focus system is as good and better because it's improved focus speed with the faster lens. it's increased focus sensitivity only in the center,selectable in the menus as an option.

  4. A regular D40 with 6mp and the cheapest 18-55 kit lens will blow away this so called high end point and shoot at any setting, any aperature and any iso value. A 6mp 30×45 enlargement from a D40 will look better in every aspect than a 10mp same size enlargement from a Panasonic LX3. LX3 is great for portability and most serious dslr photographers get one as a backup. If you push the iso of the D40 to 4-8-1600 it just keeps getting better compared to even the most expensive prosumer compacts.

  5. I owned a G9 and a lumix LX3. In terms of image quality I'm sure that G9 does a better job than the LX3, but images taken with LX3 are a little sharper. One important difference is that the noise in LX3 is really annoying, even indoor pictures have a lot of noise which G9 doesn't. I bought LX3 because of its 24mm wide angle lens to shoot scenery pictures,

  6. but since its noise control is bad I don't think I can use it for night snapshots. (G9 uses a 35mm, but then G10 has a 28mm lens, so that should be very good enough.) G9 has done a great job at noise control. It also focuses much faster & accurately compared with LX3.

  7. Seems like a great camera, but in comparsion with the G10 which has 5x zoom, better manual controls and no annoying lens cover, I think the LX3 is on the right track but no where near the G10 yet.

  8. I've heard no mention of CCD chip size on the G10. I've really wanted the LX3 for this reason, but like a lot of things about the G10 and I'm not a Canon person! I have owned 5 Panasonic's and have liked them but had two get glitchy on me.

  9. Got an LX3 off eBay for $75 recently. The image quality is amazing. It doesn't zoom as much as I'd like, but show me another f/2.0 @ 24mm (equiv) point-and shoot with such sexy image quality that you can get so cheaply.
