It's funny that since the LX5 arrived it's as though the LX3 does not exist anymore. Granted the LX5 is new and improved (with some very nice features). When I noticed fair numbers of LX3s getting dumped on CL and the various boards buy and sell sections I decided to pick one up. I ended up with a new looking 500 shot LX3 with box and all accessories still sealed in plastic for around $200. From what I have been able to tell so far it's still quite a capable camera despite being yesterday's news.
