My new Panasonic Lumix DMC-LX5 arrived yesterday. I haven’t had a chance to really put it through its paces, but so far I’m impressed with the few photos I have taken. The LX5 won out over a whole slew of contenders, and the decision to get it means a new strategy for my day-to-day photography.
The contenders included the following:
- An exact replacement of my S70 in the form of a refurbished S70
- An updated Coolpix, such as the S100
- A different small camera, such as the Panasonic Lumix DMC-ZS10
- The Canon S100
- and the one I bought, the Panasonic LX5
