LX100 design is very close to the glorious Panasonic LC1 (here on eBay)
While the comments about the soon to be announced GM5 are not that enthusiastic our sources share plenty of excitement about the new LX100! It’s going to become the best compact and fixed lens camera on market. And easily beats the RX100M3 because of the larger 16Mp Four Thirds multiaspect sensor, the superior lens (24-75mm f/1.7-2.8) and the superior video quality (4K). But all that isn’t going to be cheap. The camera will cost 845 Euro according to one of our sources. That’s 50 Euro more than the current RX100M3 price (here one Bay). The LX100 is also a tiny bit larger than the RX100 but still fits in your pocket. I think this could be the perfect 24 hours camera. You can carry it easily with you and has amazing useful specs. What more camera do you need?
