The best compact camera

If you're after a compact camera, and want the best, take a look at the Leica M8.

Flickr: Camera Finder: Leica: M8

The catch is that it costs a fortune.
M8 10.3MP Digital Rangefinder Camera Body, Black: Amazon.co.uk: Your Store

The good news is there are cheaper Leica cameras, for example:
Flickr: Camera Finder: Leica: D-LUX 3

Better still, skip the top brand name, because Panasonic do compact cameras which have Leica lenses, some of which are almost clones of the cheaper Leica cameras.

For example:
Flickr: Camera Finder: Panasonic: DMC-FS3

You can't go far wrong with that Panasonic.

Thanks Dan! I've been looking for a point-n-shoot camera, can't be bothered to suss out the digital revolution, so to speak. BTW, the Leica isn't a cheapie, folks.
