Man... the more research I do, the harder I can make my decision.

Drawback of each camera:

Panasonic LX3 - Poor optical zoom, standard movie recording
Panasonic TZ7 - Standard picture output, non-full manual (can someone confirmed?)
Canon S90 - Poor movie recording, not as versatile as Panasonic LX3
Canon SX200 IS - Standard picture output

First time buyer. But it's already killing me to make decision. Please advise.

Why Canon SX20IS? I'm also having a dilemma which to choose from cuz in the end I will be getting a DSLR but I want to have a digicam (prosumer/compact) for convenience sake. Imagine lugging a DSLR everywhere you go everyday... faints

FYI the LX3 is NOT poor optical zoom but the range is limited. Usually those with poorer optical zooms are the ultrazooms at the tele end where pics quality does degrade a bit.

I have a friend selling his Canon S90 to buy a LX3. He's not too happy with the Canon.

i would say s90 is more versatile due to the range of the lens than lx3. nonetheless, i got an lx3 and am loving it.

In addition S90 has an integrated front filter for the lens as protection. But the LX3 wins in max aperture for the range.

Aperture range
s90 = F2.0 - F4.9
lx3 = F2.0 - F2.8


im confused... does it mean lx3 wins in the aperture range????

i sold my lx3 and got a S90.

S90 iso performance wins over LX3 anyday, which is an important factor for me.
