I recently bought a low mileage silver LX3 (about 500 clicks) for some closeup work I need to do on a project I am doing. I received it the other day so I decided to take it out for a spin. I find that I like it quite a bit. The combination of small size, lots of tweak-ability and a really nice lens makes it a very appealing package. I don't think I've ever had a point and shoot be this fun (although I would argue that calling the LX3 a point and shoot is a stretch). I realize the LX3 has been replaced by the LX5 as THE camera to have but I am enjoying the LX3 none the less. I'm not ready to ditch my EPL-1 and Panasonic 20/1.7 any time soon but the LX3 is a great addition to the camera bag. I think I'd like to pick up a decent optical viewfinder for it. I hear the CV21 viewfinder is a great match for the LX3 at 24mm.
