Canon S95 v. Panasonic Lumix LX5 I know that this question has been asked about a thousand different times, but I need help choosing between the two based on my specific needs. I am a beginner (with a husband who is clueless) but hope to learn and make photography a bit of a hobby. With that said, my clueless husband will also be using this camera so it will definitely be in auto mode as well. We are about to have a new baby and I am looking for a good, small compact camera that I can learn on as well as take good pictures in auto mode. Good low light performance is a must as well (but, from what I read, it seems that both take good pictures in low light settings). Any suggestion on which one to buy?

You would not get a good answer, here of all places with so many opinionated people.
Only recommendation I can give is try both cameras in store and see which once you find comfortable to use. Both are great cameras. And really similar in performance. Can't go wrong either way.
I've heard/read that Lumix is slightly better. But I have the S90 and I can't imagine how any P&S can be better than it (aside from S95/S100) in the same category. I love the controls on it especially the customizable ring.
