WOW - excellent shot!
Morten Rasmussen: Dpreview are Panasonic fanboys. You should consider this when you read their reviews.
What I mean is;
How come a camera that was launched so recently already gets a review and a very good one, when the Sony a5100, which, I may add, probably blows the LX100 out of the water, and is same size or smaller, doesn't get reviewed.
It's always the same when panasonic ships a new camera Dpreview is right there, but not so much with the other brands. One could get the impression that they benefit somehow.
Maybe another reason is that Sony releases at least double as many new system and high end compact/bridge cameras each year than Panasonic and most other manufacturers. I admit I am a bit confused about their marketing strategy.
Great review - only one question remains if you are looking for a high quality comapct camera:LX 100 - if the zoom range suits, Oly E-PL 7 or GM 5 if you wish to keep the choice of achieving the very best results from MFT.
Looking forward to DPR's GM 5/ E-PL7 reviews.
RuthC: Congratulations, mjdundee, on second place in the 'One Red Leaf' challenge. I really like the interesting contrast between the sharp serrations on the maple leaf and the silky-smooth drop of water slowly sliding down the leaf towards the tip. Great colours throughout the picture. Ruth :-)
Tanks for another great challenge and your kind comment, Ruth. This red maple is a eye-catching element in our garden and I took thousands of photographs over the years. It always looks beautifully.Yesterday I collected the last fallen leads which had turned to Brown.Have a nice weekend,Tom
Hi Tom,My favourite mapleleaf took the first place.Great find - Vera well done!Congratulations.
Very straight and honest report from a very pretty wpman.Tech freaks and strictly Canon users might have a problem with some statements but the average open minded shooter finds Bettina's opinion definitelly usefull. Thank you & happy shooting.
C'mon Panasonic. Who needs a black/red body here in Europe?The GM 5 is a perfect retro style camera and a great successor for the genious GM 1 as wel las a much more serious camera - but PLEASE give us the SILVER EDITON!
Nice - how about pictures taken with a Pentax K 7?
The greens look superb!
Congratulations.Very nice light and BG colours
Thanks for your kind words.Finally I succeeded to hit the theme with the first trial in one of your great challenges!
It was not easy to find a truely orange leaf. This one was about the size of my thumb and I was lucky that the wind was so generous to allow a non blurred picture on the surface of the rainwater can under a tree in our garden.
Unfortunatelly I have missed voting on other entries of this challenge - pls accept my appologize - but it is obvious that most participants also struggled to get one single leaf that really looks orange.
Don't worry about the kids and ego-junkies - they are all around. Just ignore.
Have a nice WE - happy shooting.Tom
Great photograph - in the wrong challenge!Cheers,
Wpw - what a catch of light. Well done.
Fascinating composition. Woth takeing a closer look.
A composition and scenery like a miracle. Very welllseen and done!
Yawn - another trial to crab the money from your pockets - at a higher price - for the same old stuff - in different wrap.
mjdundee: What exactly do you mean by 'flat' landscape?Sample and some entries show mountains!?'
OK - I see. Thanks and good luck.

Sorry to hear your camera is lost/damaged.Buying a replacement for the camera should be easy.A clean bill of health is priceless - get well soon and show us some more Eifel impressions. Thats a great place to go with a camera.Tom
Congratulations Nik2,I like your style of presenting your photographs.This brownleaf is a excellent example of the usefull addition of minor pp work on a already very well composed picture taken with a very capable little camera. Well deserved win.
