Summary: I am a little challenged by the bells and whistles, but even still, I take great pics. I got it in white and it is beautiful and classy looking, not a a reason to buy a camera, but still, it is. All I can say is every picture I have taken turned out great. This is a quality camera.
Summary: I have had several cameras in the past few years and this by far is the overall best! I previously had a Cannon sx230 and the zoom was far better but the photo quality on the this LX5 are by far superior. The low aperature is amazing.
Summary: As a long-time Canon P&S owner I've been wanting to upgrade for a while and spent a month doing online research. It came down to the Lumix DMC-LX5 versus the Canon S95 and G12. And finally after much mulling over, I pulled the trigger on the LX5 but really had some concerns.
Summary: I love this camera. I replaced the fiddly stock lens cap on mine with a and instead of using the neck strap that came with it I use the wrist strap from my old Panasonic FH20. Now, after ~8 months, whenever I leave the house, this little camera is still in my front pocket.
Summary: I received LX5 on 8/4/2012. I am still exploring the feature of LX5. I compare LX5 and Sony DSC-W530 on landscape photos and it is not easy to tell the difference. DSC-W530 has a 26mm wide-angle lens. LX5 24 mm covers a little bit larger area but the difference is very small.
Summary: This is definately one of the best point and shoot consumer digital camera's out there. It is Made in Japan, out of metal not plastic, has a great rubberized grip (although a little small). It can do an excellent miniature mode.
Good Camera for photographing on the go- small and light

Summary: I came across this camera while researching the Leica D-lux5. I soon discovered the LX5 and the D-LUX5 are 95% the same but have some differences. For example, the LX5 has a different casing with a grip molded into it + no red dot.
Summary: Because I saw a number of reviews complaining about Panasonic honoring their warranty I also bought the Panasonic 3 year extended warranty. Hope I never need it, but if I do it seems I must drop the camera before I send it in since the extended warranty only covers accidental drops and spills, while...
Summary: Everything good that they say about this camera is true. I am not a professional but I offer this advise. With the installation of the Firmware 2.0 you have the option of dedicating one button for a particular task.
Summary: this camera does the impossible. Take professional pictures within the palm of your hand automatically. The results are as good as SLR's and format cameras in my opinion. I was shocked at the unbelievable quality of the taken pictures with absolutely no adjustments.
