Panasonic LX5 news and reviews

Share

Cameralabs posted a long Panasonic LX5 review: “So ultimately a great camera has become even better, but the biggest problem facing the Lumix LX5 is the availability of compacts boasting considerably larger sensors and the flexibility of interchangeable lenses.” And how does the LX5 compare with the Micro Four Thirds sensor? A dpreview forum user tried to find the answer by comparing the LX5 with the E-PL1.
Amateur Photograher says about the LX5: “Yet the new sensor design does go some way towards improving both the dynamic range and noise beyond what we have seen from the last generation of compact cameras. Overall, I am very impressed with the LX5.
Also Digitalcamerareview and Infosync tested the LX5.

And as you know there is a Leica clone of the LX5 which of course is much more expensive. But ThePhoBlographer gives you 4 Reasons why You Should Get the Leica D-LUX 5 vs Panasonic LX-5.

    Big whoop. Anyone actually going out to to do photography will probably never see the difference in print. The real news here is ThePhoBlographer’s link to Ken Rockwell’s “Where do Babies Come From?”. Freaking hilarious.

    The DigitalCameraReview site is a waste of time and life, don’t bother. The Phoblographer does not do a review, it is just some argument to get the more expensive Leica, with no relevant reasons “why.”

    Infosync did the best review, and has a bunch of video samples that are pretty good…

    The LX5 is an awesome little camera that is very close in performance to the Panasonic GF1. I think the GF2 sensor will have to be tarted up to make LX5 owners interested in micro 4/3 compact cameras.

    Here is a comparison of the LX3 (nearly identical predecessor to the LX5) and the full-sensor Canon 5D:
