Summary: I purchased this camera about a year ago but never took this camera serious until recently. On an overseas trip to S. Korea. I ended up using this camera because I found it impractical to carry around Canon 40 D when you walk or ride subway most of times.
Summary: Summary: An innovative and stunningly capable compact at a reasonable price with control options usually found only in SLRs. Pros: "Wide" implementation in almost every way; flexible use of sensor and aspect ratios to maximize zoom, resolution, and framing options; well-organized UI; classic camera...
Summary: i was looking for an easy to carry camera with manual/slr features. so the choice was between this, the canon m9, ricoh capilo gx100, or nikon p5100. since i wanted as wide an angle lens as possible, but had limited funds, i went with the lx2 (the ricoh goes to 24mm equiv but is significantly more...

Summary: This compact digital camera is equipped with a number of unique features and is suitable for advanced users, having 16:9 aspect-ratio format, manual exposure controls, AE/AF lock, exposure compensation, auto bracket,etc similar to SLR digital cameras.
Summary: Got this camera in late September just as it was released. Initially thought I may have made the wrong choice after reading some complaints about excessive noise but I have not found noise to be much of a problem...PROVIDED that the ISO is kept at 100.
Summary: I was a bit hesitant to buy this camera after reading reviews about how it has terrible digital noise. After spending many hours reading, researching, and analyzing online pictures of the LX2 with other comparable digital cameras of the same class, I decided to just get it anyway.
Summary: The camera works great. I chose this one due to the lens quality and larger numerical aperture than other small cameras. The photos are bright, sharp, and high quality. The camera is easy to use, but allows manual adjustment. I'm still getting use to using a screen rather than a view finder.
Pretty good for the price, definitely not an SLR replacement...

Summary: This camera does what it says it does: it takes 16:9 pictures and video at 10.2MP for pictures and OK resolutions for video. It takes decent video, if you put it on a tripod. The built-in stabilization is worthless in video mode and you'll get a palsy type shaking no matter what you do.
Summary: At least for now it is :-) . During the course of the past 10-12 months I have owned 7, that's SEVEN, digital cameras: Canon S230; Kodak V530; 5 different models of Casio's: Z60, Z600, Z850, P700; and most recently presented my wife with a red S770 for Valentine's Day.
