Anyone not liking or returning an LX5?
Oct 10, 2010

I'm a Nikon DSLR shooter looking for a compact companion camera, and I've pretty much narrowed it down to the P7000 or the LX5, which have contrasting pros and cons for me. The main draw of the LX5 is the fast lens; the main draw of the P7000 is smooth integration with my Nikon workflow and accessories.

I see a number of messages on the Nikon forum from people who have tried both and are going with the LX5 or S95 (which I don't want), but very little traffic here on the opposite: people going with an S95 or P7000 after trying an LX5.

If true, that certainly tells me something. Anyone ditched or considering ditching an LX5 for one of the competing "power compacts"?
