    Weixiang's cam/speedlight combo can do HSF but presuming anyone flash syncs at 1/2000s.. it will be virtually useless. The coverage of the flash will be too short, then again if there is a need to shoot at 1/2000s the object must be moving extremely fast or it's at high noon.

    basically the people who bought their LX 3 had no clue wad 24-60mm meant...
    and found out shortly after its not enough... the LX 3 wasnt meant for the pns mass markets, i believe, but for those who wanted a wide angle compact. for me its the perfect landscape scouting compact, day or night, in the market.

    i would trade my 450D for an LX3. HEHE. Just for the flash sync. Anyone interested can pm me.

    yea, the 1/2000th sync speed is something not all dSLR can do.. but can't really achieve 1/2000th with my cheap radio trigger, its 1/1000th at most..

    look at the post from 10.11.2008
    Cool! Thanks for the link. I will try the effect out on my cam. I've not tried how high the shutter can go with my cam, just attached my Speedlite and realized it's 1/4000s.

    How about counting the large number of buyers of LX3 and keeping it?

    you mean your colleague did not know that LX3 is not so pocketable and the zoom is not enough before he bought it...?

    people have this kinda of buying mentality..no wonder there are so many 2nd hand LX3 to let go...

    there are always going to have people who buy and sell fast. Don't bother about it.
    As long as you like it, that's fine.
    I used the Lx3 for mostly macro and wide angle shots and when I need something lighter at night.
    During the day I will just lug my d200 ard with lenses. After a day you will feel tired and you just want something lighter and still take decent pictures.
    I can't say that I really enjoy the low light shoots, but hey, you need to understand what you give up in order to have.
    I think Lx3 shoots are fantastic and it's preview display is good. Some people might sell it cos it doesn't fulfill their needs.
    Just ask yourself, why do you want a lx3? if you can answer that, then maybe you know clearly what you need and want. Most of the time, what you want might not be what you need.

    there are people who buy without knowing the strengths of the cam, and whether those features address his needs ...
