Novice Questions Regarding the P7000 vs. LX5
Sep 7, 2010

This didn't get a response in the Panasonic Forum - perhaps it was better placed here.

There is sufficient information released about the P7000 that has me asking a few questions from the experts:

1) If someone shoots 50/50 indoors/outdoors - which camera would be more versatile (the LX5 has the faster lens - but it isn't that much faster but the P7000 will have a far better/longer zoom)?

2) From what people can see (at this point) will the LX5 lens be much better or just a little better 9or perhaps the same) as the P7000?

3) In the end, priced about the same (assuming availability in about a month or so) why would someone purchase the LX5 over the P7000 or vice-versa?

Note: I presume at some point the Canon G12 will figure into all of this.
