To carry in my gear bag and everywhere I don't feel like dragging out the big guns with the SLR. Will replace my sx200IS, so the newer sx210 has already been eliminated...

The short list:
-canon s95
-leica D-Lux 5
-panny lumix DMC LX-5
-anything else I'm overlooking at the moment...

Req's, in order of importance:
-must actually fit in my pocket, no exceptions
-usual compliment of full manual controls not found on the cheaper/user friendly series digi's
-28mm or wider lens, f2 or better, optical zoom not as important
-ability to adjust aperture, optical zoom, etc while shooting HD and at least 24+fps, 29.97 would be nice
-$ no object of course:clap:
-no point commenting on further reqs as the rest of the features I expect usually come with the $ territory

What have the photog's here picked up recently or currently considering? Anyone gotten their hands on this new leica yet?

The panny has some advantage on spec, but size is also a consideration. The camera that doesnt fit in a typical jeans pocket is the one that doesn't come with me...

Canon S95:
3.93 x 2.30 x 1.16"
170g

Panasonic LX5:
4.32 x 2.58 x 1.69"
233g

LX5 is about 3/8" wider, 1/4" taller, and 1/2" thicker
