Which One: Nikon P7000 vs Panasonic LX-5 vs Canon S95

With today's announcement of the Nikon P7000, amateurs and enthusiasts have a wide range of premium point and shoots potentially to choose from. The P7000 has its own strengths while the Panasonic LX-5 and the Canon S95 cater to a similar but different audience. So which one is for you?

A Matter of Perspective

If you've ever flown over the Grand Canyon or Rocky mountains at 35,000 feet, you already know how humbling and enlightening this experience can be. Tall mountains appear small, almost flush to the plains leading up to them. The grandiosity of the Grand Canyon is equally diminished when viewed from high above.  The Rockies and Grand Canyon viewed from ground level appear immense and unconquerable, yet from high above these same geological wonders simply blend into the textures and patterns of the overall landscape. As with most things in life, how we see them is often a matter of perspective.
