Feeding the addiction

So I bought yet another camera today. This time it's a Panasonic LX1. This is a small, pocketable camera but a little bit larger than my (too small) Pentax Optio S4. The S4 is fantastic for running with but just a bit too fiddly to use. My hope is that the LX1 will be my new travel camera - small enough to stick in a pocket, but full manual controls, a decent Leica lens, 8Mp sensor and a native wide screen sensor (16:9) Finally I might have found the digital x-pan that I've been looking for. I also think this will let me play around a lot more freely with ideas, without having to wield the full Canon 1DII.
