"Superb picture quality. Fast sharp lens. WB Great."4.0 starson by fleal3366
Pros: Very sharp pictures thanks to the excellent Lens. White Balace is very good too. 2.0 lens great in low light. Picture Quality is very high here. Small Camera, not as smal as the excellent Canon S90 but still feels small in your hands.
Cons: Nothing major so far. Lens cap it's no issue to me. Just attached it to the camera and end of that. Videos very good but the software displayed them upside down. If shoot too close to people' faces with the flash, you'll get exagerated light colors.
Summary: I have the Canon S90 and love it. Heard a lot about the LX3 and decided to try my first Panasonic camera with the LX5. Fantastic decision! To me it's all about the pictue quality and this camera has it. Colors are nice thanks to the great WB. Very sharp pictures and skin colors are accurate and nice. Went to a Greek festival at night and was impressed with the picture quality. The 2.0 lens is top notch and sharp. Out of the box pictures are very good and if you shoot Raw you can make them better, especially the ones that need some adjustment.
Over all, my satisfaction with this camrera after 150+ pictures is very high. I gave it a very deserving excellent rating and the reviews of the pros will confirm what a GEM this camera is. Want great picutre quality, easy to use in a small package? The LX-5 meets and exceeds these requirements. I
