How can 15 folks have had a camera not yet released?
Nice review, sounds kike Panasonic has set a new benchmark. Camera sounds terrific and the sample shots sure seem to support the high mark for the LX100.
gulffish: Phone cameras, the really good ones, are great for all of us. Will force fit a new paradyme on the way camera manufactures have to think about protecting the P&S market, if it is in fact protectable. Regardless, we're going to end up with better, more fully featured and more capable cameras whatever the form factor may be.
An interesting time in photography, intersection of several things resulting in a unique accelleration of Moore's Law. We, the consumers, are the winners and that's terrific!
This is a good result, nice total rendering. Impressive!
A bit out of focus, not a great result full size. Lens, camera or shooter?
I agree, the incremental improvements we've beening seeing are not classic examlpes of great product planning but more of a process that trickiled improvements into the market. I'm not a fan of the conspiracy theory position but will agree that those companies in JV's and shared technology programs were not letting real competitive forces drive their new product decisions. This is going to be fun to watch over the next couple of years. Good new stuff on the way!
Nice, crisp and clear dealing well with contrast, promising.

Lots of shots look over processed.
Almost everything at 4.3m, ?????
Terrific set of amazing shots, would be great to see in original size! # 4 is stunning, makes you think!
First entry didn't show up but my submission count is 2?
Nice sample shots but to me they look flat, 0073 is agood example. Think saturation and color density need to be kicked up.
rfsIII: This isn't a pro camera. It doesn't even have mirror lockup.
Great, another shaggy pro camera story!
mr.izo: canon should just buy sigma (or at least foveon, sigma ideonst making money with it) and thats that..
Too bad, not quite that simple, I would guess Sigma owns the sensor IP but not absolutely positive. Originally, and still is, produced by National Semiconductor which is now part of Texas Instruments. Good idea but many players at the table.
