These are the only 2 brands that did not have a PNS at LX3 pricepoint.
*At US$499.95, the LX3 is in range of entry level DSLR + kit lens. from what i see, at the pricepoint..we have fixed lens pns with dslr features and fixed lens bridge cameras with pns ease of use.
The same thing but different ways of going about it. Doesnt look like much innovation other then responding to each other products.
