Worst camera that we've ever owned.

Summary: Every picture is bury. Using the auto or manual settings have no effect. Almost every picture is also over exposed. Received the camera a week after purchase. After a week of frustration and testing, we discovered that we can not return this terrible camera due to a 14 day return policy. Our old 5mp Olympus out performs this 14mp camera in every way. May take a sledgehammer to it do to the frustration of wasted money.
Summary: I bought this camera for our trip to Hawaii that we took last week. When I got the camera I put it together, and snapped a few pictures to make sure it worked alright then put it away until our trip. It worked fine the first day. On the second day a black spot appeared in the upper center of my LCD screen. I tried to clean the lens with lens cleaner, but the spot remained.
Summary: I am a pro photographer who bought this camera because of the wide angle Leica lens which most point and shoots do not have. There is a long lag time between exposures which means you cannot capture anything in quickly. You have to wait several seconds between exposures. It also does not take good photos in low light situations-photos come out blurry even when you make an effort to stay still. Sharpness is also an issue-lens does not live up to the Leica name.
Summary: I regret to say that this might be one of the worst camera's I've ever had the misfortune of owning. After months of research, I landed on this model because of the Leica optics and the effusive reviews of the Panasonic line. It was, to say the least, a disaster and though I don't usually do such things, I returned it and am still using my 3 year old Casio EXS600 which despite a relatively low megapixel rating, blows this camera out of the water in terms of sharpness,...
Excerpt: Пользовался другим Люмиксом DMC-LX2, был очень доволен им. Отдал его родителям и купил себе этот. Возможно я просто не умею пользоваться. Как ни старайся фотки получаются размыто независимо от того какое разрешение.
Pros: легкий, стильный
Cons: Вспышка работает всегда. Со вспышкой фотографии получаются темными. Без вспышки размыто даже когда светло на улице или в комнате.
