    Depends on what types of pics you are taking...

    But if you need the zoom, then definately it won't be suitable for you as the zoom equivalent for the LX3 is only from 24mm to 60mm.

    LX3 is good for landscape and low light photography as it has a 24mm lens and a large aperture of f2.0.

    Still objects, to be frank, any digicam can take under the right lighting.

    So if you are not going to use the LX3 at the zoo/birdpark and you just want to take landscape pics and pics in the late evening/at night etc without using your flash, then the LX3 could be suitable for you.

    Btw, you might also want to take a look at Fuji F200EXR. The LX3 is good if you would like to have more control, while the F200EXR is good in high iso and high dynamic range.

    Hmm.. budget well suited for student? In that case I would recommend a Nikon D3 then. Cos money won't be an issue, just ask from Dad.

    Ok jokes aside, the LX3 would cost around $680, while the F200EXR around $470. Do bear in mind if you go with the F200EXR that it doesn't really give you a lot of control though.

    Other model to consider would be the Canon G10. It's heavier and bulkier, but is consider prosumer grade.

    How much do you intend to spend?

    In that case, you can consider getting a new G10 which will cost $700++ or a second hand G9 which would probably be around $500 odd. Or you could get a SX10IS that will give you a zoom range of 28 to 560mm which would be suitable for most shooting situations.

    LX3 is a very good cam for those who do not really wanna step into the BBB world of dslr

    for those who don't want the bulk of a DSLR.. LX3 is pretty good.. and it's quite affordable.. the IQ can rival DSLR too

    but i would prefer G10 though

    enjoy CS
