roadfix, I was looking at the Lumix LX3, but size-wise it was larger than what I wanted. That is why I did not get that or the Leica D-Lux 4. This cannon slips right into my pocket which was what I really needed. It looked like both the Leica and Lumix could fit in a pocket if you had to, but not easily which is why I did not go that route.

I only wish the Canon came with a 24mm WA equivalent. And I don't mind the very short optical zoom range. Back in the old SLR days my Nikkor 24mm/2.8 was one of my favorite lenses.

I don't mind the short optical zoom rabge either. I am actually hoping it will force me to be a better photographer by not relying on zooming.

I know exactly what you're saying. I'm still hoping for a WA fixed focal length, advanced P&S camera. Ricoh had one with a fixed 28mm equivalent but was way over priced.

My very first digital camera was a Ricoh back around 1996 or 1997 I think.
