The Panasonic LX3 price check.

Share

The Panasonic LX3 has been loved by many of us and was one of the first cameras that did not join the crazy Megapixel race. Bigger sensor and less Megapixels!

Now the price of the LX3 is falling more and more and I haven taken some time to make a price check-up.

USA:
Adorama and BHphoto both do have it in Stock for $398.

Germany:
Amazon has the LX3 in Stock. Interesting: in this case the black model (388,99 €
) is cheaper than the silver model (407,40 €).

Pixmania has the black LX3 for 357,90 €

UK:
Amazon UK has the black Panasonic LX3 for £319.63.
Pixmania has the black Panasonic LX3 for £ 315

Spain:
Pixmania has the black LX3 for 336,17 €

France:
Amazon France has the LX3 in Stock for 349 €
Pixmania France has the Panasonic LX3 for 363 €
