Even though I'm looking for a simpler, smaller and more convenient camera, I want as much flexibility from the DSLR in my compact P&S. Here is a list of features that I want/need (in prioritized order): #### Features - Manual controls - Fast aperture (<2.8) - Good in low light - RAW - Good looks - Small size & low weight ### So what are the options After searching the discussion boards all around the web (Flickr, Photo.net, dpreview etc.) I've come down to a couple of choices in which I have to decide between. The obvious choice for some, _Panasonic Lumix LX5_, the more expensive _Leica D-Lux 5_, the little brother _Canon S95_ and the cheap outsider _Nikon P300_.
