Samsung's competition for the LX6/7
Jul 4, 2012

I think this announcement deserves its own thread in this forum:

http://www.dpreview.com/news/2012/07/03/samsungreleasesex2f

This is a much more direct competitor to at least the previous versions of the LX line, and the fact that it is Samsung indicates that someone besides a few LX5 diehards believes there is still some life left in this market segment.

A new camera with a 1/1.7" sensor and a 24mm to 80mm f1.4 to 2.5 Schneider badged lens. And they haven't gone crazy on the megapixel count.

Now it will be even more interesting to see what Panasonic comes out with if the rumoured announcement actually materialises.

Personally, I'm hoping it's not a fixed focal 24mm with a 1" sensor because then I'll have to rethink my recent purchase of a replacement LX5 (half joking, I love the LX5, especially at the current prices).

Panasonic Lumix DMC-LX5
