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!
Summary: overall a great product, but you are not able to use only the automtic program. Most time the pictures are overexposed, so you have to adjust the fash a little.If you do so, you are getting nearly the same picture quality as a SLR camera.the camera has a top level leica objective and a grat cmos sensor. also you are able to make great wide angle pictures. material and design are high quality. I'm happy with it.
Summary: Fantastic. I owned the older version of this camera when a friend broke it. After spending nearly a month looking at other cameras I came back to this one. Great quality photos. It's as manual or as automatic as you want. Spend the extra $$ for the Leica version if you want the cooler outer case and Leica name.
Continues to be the best small digital camera I've ever owned

Summary: I've used the Canon Powershots, great cameras, but I love all the manual features this camera offers. 16x9 aspect ratio is another huge selling point for me. I owned the DMC-LX1 before this model and I upgraded simply for the 10 megapixels. This camera can be as easy or as complicated as you want - set to auto and it's really just point and shoot for beautiful pictures every time. Use the manual features and really go nuts. I can't say enough great things about it.
