Pros Perfect camera to have in your pocket and use instead of your large DSLR. I only shoot RAW, and decided to switch from a clunky megazoom compact to one that had less zoom but worked better in low light and had better image quality overall.
Cons really none. Ideally I would like a more powerful zoom, but since that means a bulkier camera whose lens isn't as good under normal conditions, I made the trade-off and am very happy.
Summary The controls are exceptionally easy to use and image quality is outstanding. Last but not least, you can get a leather case that has a belt loop, which is ideal for me.

"Yesterday's camera?"on by tinfire
Pros Dynamic Range has improved over the LX3 and the increased focal length is useful.
RAW files rather good
Cons The jpegs can be awful. I'm glad the review picked up on that.
Sometimes a shot looks great and then the next comes out smeary and lacking detail. Not what I expected. Some questions over lens performance.
No apparent progress in jpeg processing since the LX3, Use as a RAW and video only camera.
"Excellent camera"on by bborowski
Pros If you use this camera how and what it's meant for, it is an amazing camera........... I had a Canon g10 and the LX5 produced much cleaner and clearer pictures than the canon. This is one capable camera once you know how to use it
Cons white balance / purple streaks are a nuisance under certain conditions
Summary this is the best camera I have owned so far . I love it
Pros It features a longer lasting battery then the lx3
Cons It could have improved on its movie mode which is still shot in 720p
Summary The <a href="default.asp">Panasonic DMC Lumix LX5</a> is a high quality slr. Its truly a superb camera that come packed filled with all kinds of features.
