LX5 firmware update is here

So far the update seems pretty decent. The enhanced video stabilization is unbelievably steady, but I have to check the effect on the IQ. The stabilization also crops the view slightly, so I won't keep it always on.

New manual focus protocol seems okay. The MF help magnification disappears quickly, though, so there might be some need for a new technique or faster fingers.

The new AF/AE lock feature is cool. Also the possibility to fine tune the LCD and EVF is nice. Especially the EVF became better looking after one notch color corrections.

I haven't tried the other features, but they seem useful for many people: super long shutter speeds, AF area memory, enhanced high ISO noise reduction and miniature effect.

A good upgrade to a good camera.

Regards,

Ravalls
