    which camera for a birthday present (Canon, Panasonic, Nikon)?

    I'm trying to choose between these three that I've managed to narrow it down to. I'd appreciate any thoughts you guys can share with me. Pros and cons of each? :thanks

    Panasonic Lumix DMC-LX3


    Canon G10


    Nikon Coolpix P6000

    If picture quality trumps EVERYTHING else by far, then go for the Panasonic Lumix DMC-LX3. It's got a very fast lens with great picture quality. However, I find the 24-60mm lens too limiting. I love the ultra-wide but there's nothing on the telephoto side.

    The Canon G10 has very good picture quality for a P&S (low light quality's not great, but that's the norm for P&S). Lots of user control, good wide angle, decent telephoto. A good shooter's camera if DSLR's not an option or desire. It's what I went with. I'm a big fan of the Canon camera line.

    I don't know anything about the Nikon.
