"Beautiful pictures, but nor really portable, darn it!"3.5 starson by wawafoto
Pros: Superb Quality. As a rep at B&H said: "The Canon S95 will take photos you'd see in a magazine. The LX5 will take picture's you'd see in a book." CLOSE macro focusing (1cm, and yes it is useful). Excellent flash coverage and exposure in Macro mode. 2
Cons: Not really a portable point-and-shoot like the Canon S95 (which i eventually chose after testing both). That DARN LENS CAP!!! "Unimportant", say the purists -- but it has a nasty habit of getting in the way, especially when shooting video. Also gives er
Summary: Best choice for purists who want a "real" camera in compact size. But it is a mid-size, not a true compact.
