Preorders: LX100II at Bhphoto. Adorama. FocusCamera. WexUk.
Richard Butler from Dpreview wrote an article about why he is delighted to see an LX100 II:
Why do I like the LX100 concept so much? Because I enjoy the process of taking photos. I like playing with settings. I like feeling involved. One of my colleagues referred to the LX100 as almost being a Fujifilm X100 with a zoom, and I think they’re exactly right. Despite their very similar control layouts, I’d not spotted the comparison partly, I think, because the hybrid viewfinder and fixed 35mm equiv lens make up so much of my conception of the X100, but also because the LX100 is noticeably smaller.
In the Field with the Panasonic Lumix DC-LX100 II by Allan Weitz:
I liked shooting with the Panasonic original Lumix DMC LX100, and the LX100 II reinforced my original impressions. There’s a choice of several very able premium point-and-shoot cameras in this price range, some with 1″ sensors and some with APS-C sensors, and the Panasonic Lumix DC-LX100 II gives each of them a run for the money.
