Excerpt: Hi, Considering that the S110 dates back to Sept. 2012, and this camera has a viewfinder, which the former doesn't (and the price right now is excellent), I figured this should be a good idea as an upgrade. Both, the DMC-LF1 and the S110 are practically the same size and weight. In essence, the Lumix is a good camera, but I expected the image quality to beat my S110, since the sensor is the same size but about 2 years newer.
Pros: Easy To Use, Great Zoom, Large Clear LCD, Nice Body Color, Short Lag Time, Small / Compact, Viewfinder, Viewfinder Yay
Summary: The Panasonic DMC-LF1 is a unique camera, that technically wildly excels at practically nothing. However, it is an appealing combination in a very small package that competes with the Canon S110 and S120 cameras. Despite its small size, it has a slightly larger than common 1/1.7 inch sensor, the same size as the cited Canon models and the Panasonic LX-7. Its battery life (CIPA 230 images) is better than the Canon models, but not as good as the LX-7 (CIPA 330 images).
Summary: I use this camera alone when I do not want to carry my Panasonic GH3 DSLR. When I do have the GH3, I keep the LF1 in the camera bag just to sometimes capture a few quick shots that are not accommodated by the lens I have mounted on the GH3. Are the LF1 pictures as good as those taken by a GH3/lens combination costing 5X more? Of course not.
Excerpt: This camera is a replacement another high end point ande shoot. I wanted a camera that would allow me to make the same adjustments I might with a DSLR but small and light weight and easy to carry around. This was an excellent choice and has been everthing I wanted!
Pros: Easy To Use, Fast/accurate auto-focus, Good Image Quality, Good Image Stabilization, Good in Low Light, Great Zoom, Large Clear LCD, Nice Body Color, Short Lag Time, Small / Compact
