Did you buy a camera? Panasonic just announced the new version of the LX3: the Panasonic Lumix LX5
. Gizmodo has an article on the new camera.
DPReview has a review too
. The new camera will be priced at $500 and will probably be a little hard to get.
The price for the LX3 is really good right now. It's ~$386 on Amazon. This camera takes awesome pictures. I sometimes think it's better than my Nikon D200.
