Summary: I like this device. I have been using it for a couple years now. It is built real well. The optics are great. The features are numerous. I really like the stabilizer feature. If I was to trade mine in I would only look for something with more zoom and something that shoots better in low light situations.
Summary: I have the Lumix FX 50 a while ago and wanted to have a smaller camera for everyday use. I love my new LX2K - it is small but takes the same great fotos like its big brother does. for everyone who wants more than snapshots - this is the right choice.
Summary: I will give my individual perspective on this LX2. I ordered mine from JM Group and I am so happy with them, I wish I could order everything from them. They charged a very reasonable price especially for the black (k) model. They packaged it very well and shipped it right away. Now, about the fine camera. Leica lens- very very sharp. I've been shooting everything below ISO 100 and no problem with noise.
Summary: I happen to love mine. I have had it for a few months now and love the picture quality. I gave up my Canon SD750 for this as my point and shoot (I have a Canon 30D SLR for my trips) and the only thing I miss is being able to slip it into a pocket! I went for the $75 Leica case made for the sister camera and love it!
