I personally love Panasonic compact cameras. I own the LX3, but the ZS3 would be my second choice! It has a longer zoom range than the LX3 and this alone could appeal to all the people who feel that the LX3’s range is too short.
Digitalcamera posted a review of the Panasonic Lumix DMC-ZS3. The only thing I don’t like is that the camera is noisy at 200ISO :(
