    Fun with my Lumix LX3

    Trying to decide if I'm keeping this camera or returning it for a E620 with two lenses. It's quite a lot of money but it's also quite a lot of compact camera ;)

    Decisions Decisions

    Please be as critical as possible and tear down my technique/photos/quality so I can learn :)

    I think your photos are great - creative and artistic.

    I've heard very good things about the LX3, especially at night.

    Thanks everyone. I actually have a Nikon D40. I'm just having problems finding a fast 50mm+ prime lens for it that has AF-S.

    The LX3 can't do portraits with very shallow DOF is the biggest limitation I've run into.

    Great series of shots.
    I would say keep the LX-3.

    Darn, yes some of the newer entry level Nikon DSLR don't work with the good old AF Nikkor 50mm f/1.8 anymore - these lenses were dead cheap and supercool.

    But at a cost you can get the AF-S Nikkor 50mm f/1.4G:

    (click the image for more info...)

    Or the AF-S Micro Nikkor 60mm f/2.8G ED

    That problem is inherent with all P&S cameras. Due to their very short focal lengths the DoF is always pretty deep.

    I actually just picked up a 55-200 Nikkor VR. I think I'll either end up picking up the 35mm or just wait until I upgrade to a D200 or D300 and pick up the prime lens then.

    I like your pictures a lot

    I think your pictures are awsome... I need to break out of the box and quit taking all watch pictures!

    I tried buying an LX3 last summer, and it was so difficult...they were no where to be found. I stopped by a nice camera shop and got the Leica D lux 4 (paid a bit more than the panasonic too ).

    The camera was a big step up for me, and I'm so happy to have it over my previous point and shoot. I like you, and learning!
