Panasonic Lumix DMC LX5 - Full Review

Panasonic's new high end camera, successor to the phenomenal LX3, introduces improvements across the board.

Important Note: the LX5 was replaced by the Panasonic Lumix DMC LX7 (compare ).

The LX5's Price Watch:

The LX3 was something to write home about. Apart from its short zoom range, it had everything right. The LX5, just out, is taking over Panasonic's flagship position, extending the zoom to a workable range, and keeping or improving every other feature of the LX3. It's not ground breaking. It doesn't need to be. It's automatically competing with the best of them, with good chances of winning. Its image quality both in normal settings and in low light conditions is rivaled only by a handful of cutting edge, top performing compact cameras.
