In reply to:

Mike FL: If LX100 threatened RX100-3's sales# due to advantage of sensor size, SONY may release an APS-C sensor P&S with size no big than LX100.

BUT, I do not think Panasonic can sale more LX100 than RX100-3 even RX100-3 is aged as LX100's design is much older; 10 years old exactly even 10 years older LC1 has a 2-position Flash built in.

Leica's lens is a selling point, but Panasonic's engineers are getting too lazy.

To MFL
FACTS about Panasonic vs Sony ref Blomberg 2014
1.Shares of Panasonic rose 0.5 percent to 1,314.50 yen. Since April 2012, Sony shares have gained only 14 percent, compared with a 73 percent jump for Panasonic.
Sony’s American depositary receipts fell 4.4 percent to $18.04 at the close in New York, following yesterday’s 6.8 percent decline. The shares are at their lowest in a month.
2.Sony Corp is paying a price while competitor Panasonic Corp. prospers.
Sony fell 8.6 percent, the most since November, to 1,940 yen in Tokyo trading, wiping $1.8 billion from its market value. The company projected a loss of 230 billion yen ($2.1 billion) for the year because of faltering smartphone sales. Sony won’t pay an annual dividend for the first time since it went public in 1958. Standard & Poor’s may cut the company to below investment grade.

Miki Nemeth: When I saw that DPReview gave such a high score to a camera that I evaluated to be mediocre, I was surprised but I thought I am not an expert at all. Then I've just read Behiri's review www.cinema5d.com/panasonic-lx-100/ and I think I was a bit right. I think the LX100 cannot come even close to Sony's RX100R3.

Always there is a black sheep in the group and outliers

Sergey Borachev: Let me summarise the review as below.

This is a wonderful little camera that could have been truly great if it had:

- Touchscreen
- ND filter
- Built-in flash

Lets hope we will see them in the LX200.

It is called an art and experience to take equally good photos WITHOUT touchscreen,tilting screen,flash and ND filter.10% equipment+ 40% natural lighting + 50% a person behind the camera .... that what counts...besides must have this..... must have that in life.. in every situation ... is akin to OCD.....

Boss of Sony: I thought this was the ideal camera until I realized it was the same size as the A6000 with one of its small lenses on it. A6000 has twice the sensor size, twice the megapixels, and the option of changing lenses, plus it's cheaper.

Some needs to check vision test 20/20

Do not want Sony.....do not want to change lens,do not print more than A4 size(12Mpixels is more than enough),do not have to change lens or do not have time wasted when once in a life time moments are passed by,do want Leica lens, do want to do 4K video and 4K stills snapshots from 4 k video,do not want to use flash, do want to use nocturnal shots and do want to use 3 cm macro WITHOUT changing lens do not want to change lens and carry lens ........LX100 will do all that and scored a healthy 85 with GOLD scoring
It is slick... it is sexy ....it is small enough and would handles all situations with all in one lens option and excellent built-in EVF and had a famous homozygous twin brother .....called Leica

liustephen: if it only had a built in flash......

LX100 is a night stalker stealth camera for stage shows and museum Flash is not needed and banned and LX100 excels in those dark scenes and superb in the bright sun too and of course 3cm Macro too

tigen: I think the review doesn't spend enough time looking at image quality. It's mostly limited to a couple of paragraphs. Actual images compared to its peers don't seem to hold up as much as the review indicates.

Some needs to check 20/20 vision

In reply to:

art99: It offers 4K video but no mic input. So that means there was absolutely no room to squeeze in somewhere a mic jack. How about making the camera just a wee bit larger like the size of a Leica M, this way there would also be room for another unthought of jack...the headphone jack ??
I know many will say that this was not meant as a video cam BUT, in that case why would they make it with 4K ????
Sorry Panny, no jacks no buy. Maybe on the LX200

What is the problem with no mic??? You can do audio dubbing during editing anyway ,any music any language for dubbing
Never done audio dubbing before ???all video softwares have audio dubbing stereo,DTS or dolby Keep it simple The image is the most important 4K and the rest add on

In reply to:

rsp: Sorry if this has already been discussed here in one of the 1825 previous posts: somebody has taken a shot at 24 mm with the LX100 and just a moment after with the Fuji X30 at 28 mm. It seems that the angle of view is nearly the same. The explanation would be that the LX100 has so much distorsion at 24 that the remaining field of view, once corrected, is near that of a 28 mm.
Did somebody here has experienced that?
Thanks.

P.S. Please note that I didn't take these pictures myself, so I'm not yet sure of that, there maybe some mistake.

Please show comparisons pictures of Both LX100 at 24mm and X30 at 28mm.If it is the same then no point buying LX100.I have Lx7 and Panny wides are really wide.Show the evidence!

My bet is DPR would score LX100 GOLD award in upcoming review?

Mike Ronesia: How is the macro mode on this camera? It could be perfect for an underwater housing.

I believe LX100 would give excellent Macro among PNS

LarsLeibgott: I would very much like DPR to run a simple dust test on all these cameras. A Google search for the X100/X100s, RX100 line, Ricoh GR, X30, and so on down the line, reveals that sensor dust is a fairly serious problem (serious in relative terms, of course) with fixed lens compacts. I think it should be par for the course once DPR finish their hands on - f/16 at the sky and check for dust. These are cameras that have street photography very much in mind in terms of design, so it's not like shooting at f/11 and above is an abnormal condition. What do you say, DPR?

Dust problems continued
A few case reports and a trend or an incidence of a particular camera with respect to the dust issue and the so called pumping mechanism effects are totally different.
One could not simply extrapolate the findings of a particular issue or branded camera to another one assuming it behaves the same??
Dust issue are related to the following
1.dry dust
2.environment
3.personal care and handling
4.seals or gaskets integrity of the fixed lens and any gaps .seals.OVF.eVF ,pop up flash areas or any potential areas of gaps where there will be an ingress of micro / nano /pico or femto dust particles
5. storage and casing
6.endemic to a certain brand or quality control issue will never become epidemic to other camera brands hence the trends and incidences.
7.pressure gradients between the inner capsule of a camera and the ambient pressure in the presence of dusts.
8,Air changes/convection and radiating currents around the camera

shutterpete: I can't help feeling that my old Fuji X20 lens gave sharper crisper results than the LX100 samples seen here. Can anyone agree or disagree?

Disagree

NEVER had so called dust problems !!!
Very subjective view on pumping mechanism
I use TZ3 TZ7 Tz30 LX3 LX7 since 2007 Where are the problems???
show me the evidence and numbers??
May be non Panasonic ones???

Biological_Viewfinder: Another Panasonic getting another amazing review.

I'll never buy it.

I know better. I've owned 4 Panasonic cameras, a couple of TVs, and some other crap from that company. NONE OF IT WAS AS GOOD AS OTHER BRANDS. NONE OF IT!

Joker??

SulfurousBeast: Anyone think "made in china" LX100 is a dampener or even a deal breaker? Sort of this premium compact losing its cachet? Wonder where the Typ109 is made, dont want a made in China Leica, that's me though... But guess a lot of you out there thnking along the same lines...?

Nowadays one could not stay away from Made in China products and as long as the ISO Quality control is there with bench marking China products are NO problems IMHO
