Panasonic Lumix DMC-LX5

TL, Amazon
29 January 2012
  • Summary: I was looking for a better P&S camera (for food photography) to replace my Panasonic Lumix DMC-ZR1 with the consideration of portability, a better image quality, and with a manual control. After reading the reviews and tech specifications, I settled on the Panasonic Lumix DMC-LX5 for its fast lens and low light photography capability.

  • Excerpt: When my LX3 was stolen I bought the LX5. I'm not as happy with it as I was with the LX3. Problems: Sometimes the zoom lever is 'jerky' or even jams.

  • Excerpt: Dear Reader The positive feedback and reviews this camera have gotten is overrated. In many ways my old canon 350D out best the lx5 in all regards. Granted yes it's "big" sensor camera, but still 7 years OLD! I was expecting at least same quality, which the LX5 falls short of. + Great lens In normal situations is a quite good little camera macro a welcome surprise controls is easy With ND filter the LX5 is OK in bright light.

It's OK but not amazing

  • Summary: Before purchasing this camera I considered the S95 (canon) and the G12 as they were then the only available point and shoots with wide lenses and full manual control. I read a lot of reviews and tested the three cameras at a store and finally decided to get the LX5 because of superior handling over the s95 and compact size compared the G12.

Use S95 more than LX5

Amazon Customer, Amazon
26 March 2011
  • Summary: I have both the S95 and LX5. Wanted a small, high quality camera to take everywhere with me. I end up taking the S95 90% of the time because the jpeg colors look much better, it is smaller and I don't have to worry about the lens cap. The skin colors on my Asian kids just don't seem right with the LX5 but looks great with S95. The S95 and my old Olympus C-7070 have the best straight out of camera jpeg colors. I love the video and the bright lens on the LX5 though.

Could be really good, BUT...

  • Summary: ...the quality is completely inconsistent. I have now purchased four, count them: 1, 2, 3, 4 of these cameras. The first one was returned because every image had a greenish yellow tint that was unnatural and could not be eliminated through white balance adjustment. So, I returned it and ordered camera number two. This one seemed to take great photos all around. However, the glass on the the lcd, within a couple of days, was loose and wobbled around. Strike two.

Frankly a Bit Disappointing

  • Summary: I am a huge fan of the Panasonic Lumix DMC LX-3 and I purchased their new model with high hopes. All the reviews talked up the new extended zoom and improved processor but didn't really state the obvious. Sorry LX-5 lovers, but the design of this new model is a bit clumsy, it just doesn't feel as good in the hand as its 5 star rated predecessor. So for me, even if it is marginally technically superior, it looks and feels like an ugly, clunkier relation of the sleek LX-3.

Solo hay que probarla y listo

  • Summary: Como aficionado desde tiempo hace a este mundo cambiante que es la fotografia, cuatro palabras que se no compartira mas de uno. El otro dia y con la ilusion de tener una compacta con buen cache y sobre todo buena óptica, me decidi a adquirir la Lumix LX5 , ya digo sobre todo por las excelencias que no pongo en duda del objetivo Sumicron de Leica.

Problem Weissabgleich und Vgl. S95

Danman, Amazon
21 January 2011
  • Summary: Habe sowohl die Canon S95 als auch die LX 5 "im Haus". Es hat sich das bestätigt, was man eigentlich sowieso schon überall gelesen hat. Die Lumix hat einen klar größeren "Haben wollen Faktor". Die Kamera sieht super aus und liegt gut in der Hand. Damit einher geht aber auch der große Nachteil dieser Kamera. Während die S95 wirklich pocketable ist, ist die LX bereits so groß, dass sie nur in eine große Jackentasche passt.
