Iwould say the Panasonic LX2 is the winner so far.
LOL, here we go again
In what way is it the winner, independently, in the real world outside Leonardville?
I also have the G9....but given the LX2 fits in a pocket this is what distinguishes it as a LEADER.
So fitting in one's pocket constitutes leadership? You probably have one old condom in your pocket too, which for you probably consititutes a whole year's supply. Does this pocket-placement make said prophylactic a "leader" too?
The best picture you can take with these P&S cameras is the one you take with whatever camera you have with you at the time.
True, and I always have my G9 with me as well.
Because of its portability, I always have it with me.
Which? The condom or the LX2?
Also, it shoots 28mm....and I think most would agree that P&S are mostly used,and benefit from more on the wide end, then on the tele end.
Maybe in Leonardville "most" people do, but in the rest of the world most people use P&Ss at the other end, to zoom-in, for family shots, and for handy macro, not for trying to do landscapes.
Street shooting and interiors definatley benefit from its 28mm as opposed to the G9's 35mm.
Again, you speak as if Leonardville is where everyman resides. In the real world, the sales volume, the reviews, and the general consumer and
professional purchase decisions say otherwise, that the G9 meets the needs of most users better.
There may be those G9 users that disagree... they dont know Jack.
LOL, that was cute
