My previous Nikon L-camera (3.2Mpx) served me for 8 years and died last month under 3-day rain in a cycling tour in Cornwall. I was sad because it was co handy (I used it even more than my SLR camera Nikon D60, because it could be taken easily everywhere, the quality of pictures was excellent and in a 2Mpx-mode all operations with files were so quick).
I went to Jessops to find a replacement, without much hope: I knew most modern cameras have big numbers of Mpx (which are not that necessary for family photos, but take ages to download and lots of PC space), lithium batteries (which means one should bring a charger when travelling), and rather expensive for this class. But I found L22! I am impressed! I got my good old camera reborn: with AA-batteries (so I can even use my old Nikon charger and accumulators, whereas on the go I can get batteries in any shop) and with a 3Mpx mode available (even my old memory card is fine for that).
Yet, the quality of the body is obviously better, the camera is more compact, higher ISO, etc etc. And I did not even need the manual, as I knew most of the environment from other Nikon cameras, whereas new features were intuitively obvious.
Excellent job of Nikon, as always. Keeping traditions and steadily improving.
