Summary: Released during the latter part of 2010, the Lumix LX5 continues to gather admiration and accolades from those who have had hands-on experience with this digital camera. This review will look at what this camera is capable of and what makes it an outstanding point-and-shoot.
Summary: With its new high quality 24-90mm f/2.0-3.3 Leica lens, the Panasonic Lumix LX5 has something new and exciting to shout about that separates it from previous-generation models. Image quality is good, though not exceptional, and it’s the lens that particularly excels in achieving sharp, fine detail.
Pros: Build, layout, HD video, quick AF
Cons: Expensive, limited zoom range, no viewfinder
Conclusion: If you are looking for the very best picture quality a compact digital camera can deliver then you will be hard pressed to find better than the Panasonic Lumix DMC LX5. It fully merits an outstanding rating. Over to you!
Summary: So, there are elements of the LX5 that will immediately be familiar and non-threatening to those who have tried one of Panasonic's point and shoots yet are now looking for something meatier and more future-proof.
Conclusion: There is clearly more to this camera than immediately meets the eye, as the LX5 comes across as a veritable pocket rocket and sports the physically smaller dimensions we imagined Micro Four Thirds hybrid models would deliver, when we first saw those cameras' press shots.
Pros: Sharp images, decent lens, ease of use given the level of sophistication on offer, manageable dimensions, rock solid build, higher than average light sensitivity settings
Cons: Launch price overly expensive so shop around, Live View finder costs extra
