    Hi Everyone, I'm excited to have joined this site. I'm a micro four thirds user (GF1) who's looking for a serious point and shoot and will open a new thread on the subject soon. Please feel free to leave your thoughts as I'm very curious what all of you think.

    Hello and welcome Sam - lots of good advice to be found here. I'm happy with my EX1 but it lacks HD video and has a top shutter speed of only 1/1500.

    Hello and welcome Sam. You'll find friendly advice on just about all of the serious P&S cams on here. I'm sure we have users for all of them. I'll raise a cheer for the LX3/LX5 but do post your specific questions on your new thread and we'll advise as well as we can.

    Welcome to the forum Sam! I have a Canon S90, and it sure produces the best photos I've seen in any of my point and shoot cameras.

    Thank Olli. The thread is called:
    "LX5, S95, XZ1, or SZ-30MR If you had to, which would you choose? "

    Welcome from Philly Sam.
    Now don't pay any attention to anything I say....

    The LX5 is a great camera. Sam, it's like this Sam.
    I wanted a combo like the GF1 and the LX5....
    I had it Sam, I had it....but then these guys and gals around here and that other site with that nutty admin, well they started talking about this Fuji X100 thing.
    So Sam, I fell off the wagon and sold the LX5.

    Sam, I then realized that If'n I gotz the X100 I would still need a zoomie or interchangeable lens camera.
    So Sam, I sold that there GF1 and gotz the Nex 5.
    Waiting on the Fuji now.....

    Other Nexians here are that BB woman, Olli, Pete, Andy to name a few....

    Anyway Sam, as I stated, don't listen to a word I say...

    The LX5 will turn ya on ...
    Dazed and confused.... Shooter

    Sam, thanks for stopping in here for your official introduction - and I hope you'll enjoy yourself here with our small but growing band of brothers and sisters!:flowers_2:

    I'm laughing with Streetshooter AKA Don, not at him mind you. I can't help but think about that old favorite by Crosby Stills Nash & Young "Love the One Your With".:biggrin:
