We need to buy two for Overland Journal, but quickly... Are you ready to make that jump?

I have gone that route for years with the 20D, and after having zero failures all that time, I can see the benefit of the back-up camera being a different type of tool, for example extremely portable and discrete, like the D-Lux 3. The images (in RAW) that come out of that thing is amazing, and it allows for a compact package. Of course, just my approach to it, but I am usually space constrained for gear, so always thinking smaller.

I am starting to lean that way. It is so reasonable and a good performer too. I guess my attraction to the Leica brand is having more than a passing influence on this purchase
