The Panasonic LUMIX DMC-LX3 which is one of the most powerful compact cameras on the market recently received the a DIWA Gold award. The LX3 impresses with its image performance, its 24mm wide-angle zoom and f/2.0-2.8 lens speed.
According to Kai Thon: "The LX3 is by far the most powerful compact camera available, even when compared to much larger cameras. Despite its record-breaking 24mm wide-angle zoom and f/2.0-2.8 lens speed, lens performance is outstanding. Like most 10 MP compacts, image noise is evident at high sensitivities, but that’s about the only weakness disturbing high overall image quality. Although the LX3 is primarily targeted experienced users, no photographer should be surprised to find themselves beaten by the camera’s amazing "iA" shooting mode. It’s breathtaking, and you won’t believe it till you’ve seen it!"
