Summary: I just purchased a used LX2 and am delighted with the image quality in Jpeg and even better is the RAW performance. Camera is a delight to use, especially easy in manual modes for better quality. I find it even better then the Canon S90 and S95 though not as fast as these cameras. Slightly slow in autofocus but this isn't a determent. You get a quality camera, excellent ergonomic and superb Lecia lens. Don't pass this one up! Checkout my included photos.
Summary: It is just what I wanted. I has good telephoto capabilities,sd card and AA batteries. Compact easy to use point and shoot. I will be carrying it and did not want a expensive camera that I will bang up.
Summary: I have had my LX2 for several years and have shot thousands of pictures with it. It is an absolute dream to use and the quality of the photos are remarkable. I have purchased other cameras that provide some new features, like a touch screen and feature rich GUI, and have always come back to the LX2 for shot quality, speed and features. The Program and Manual controls of this camera are "over the top" in functionality and ease of use.
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: It is SMALL and powerful..The Lx2 takes photos that rival DSLR quality. 4x zoom is a (maybe) a little small range, but with 10mp u can 100% crop and still print 8x10..It is ONE of the best Ihave ever owned....
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: The LX-2 is a serious photographer's point-and-shoot camera. In my experience, including 4 other "serious" P&S cameras, the Panasonic excels in user control, quality construction, classic design, and ease-of-use. It's image quality (in halfway decent light) is equivalent to many dSLR's. In poor light, I often took this camera in lieu of my dSLR (which has a slower lens) because its excellent IS and low-light capability makes after-dark pictures not only possible but fun.
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: We've had this camera for a while now, and we still love it. We love all the different features it offers, and the quality of pictures that it takes. I'd recommend reading the instructions manual if you want to use manual focus or any of the other programs it has. The rechargable battery is nice, too. It's the best camera we've ever owned.
